Comprehensive an interesting

This is a very comprehensive an interesting course. It is also extremely relevant even though it was done a few years ago. For those who have an interest in cyber security or computing generally, you will get a lot out of this course. For those who are new to this world, you will still find the course useful but some parts of it maybe slightly advanced. However, the professor does a great job of explaining things even to the neophytes.

Made me think

This is a good overview of cybersecurity; not too technical as an audio book is not well suited in my opinion for very technically complex material. It is a thoughtful and thorough perspective of internet security and tackles some of the issues, such as privacy, that our societies will need to deal with, whether some of us want it or not.
I am not an expert in the field and this opened my eyes to cybersecurity and the cyber world.

Fantastic Course

Would you listen to Thinking about Cybersecurity: From Cyber Crime to Cyber Warfare again? Why?

This is a fantastic course, illustrating how many perspectives there are to cybersecurity. This is the future of warfare, and it impacts civilians - and it's scary. This should be taught at every university.

What about Professor Paul Rosenzweig’s performance did you like?

He gives an excellent delivery. His passion for the subject comes through.

cursory analysis. outdated.

this is, obviously, an ever-changing topic. for a publication on cyber* to have lasting value, it needs to bring a analytical framework that will outlive the current tech. this doesn't really deliver.

Very informative, well researched, and engaging

Great for the technologically adept and inept! Concepts are explained with real world analogs and examples. Theories are related to their actual application in everyday life. Fantastic book. The narrator's voice and performance takes a little to get used to, but not bad at all.

Tied a lot of fragments together

Would you consider the audio edition of Thinking about Cybersecurity: From Cyber Crime to Cyber Warfare to be better than the print version?

This course did a great job organizing a lot of mandated corporate cyber training I have had over the years.

Interesting and important

This audiobook (and the other one by the same prof) is fantastic. Really enjoyable.

Some of the technical material is fairly basic for anyone with systems experience, but is important for context in describing concepts. Plus, it's important for less technical listeners.

Recommended.

Wide but not deep

This course covers a wide variety of topics in the world of cyber security. It provides a high level description of topics such as big data, cyber threats, state actors, and how to protect yourself. For anyone with a cursory knowledge of cyber security you won't learn much but you might appreciate how these ideas are organized and placed in the broader context of geopolitics.

Essential baseline knowledge

Highly recommended if you need an organized, thorough foundation to this topic. Works very well even if you are familiar with basic concepts and language.

Felt like a college 101 class (I mean that in a good way), and as such the only thing I'd like to see to improve is a recommended reading list for further depth on topic.
