Publisher's Summary

Targeted attack and determined human adversaries (DHA) have changed the information security game forever. Writing secure code is as important as ever; however, this satisfies only one piece of the puzzle. Effective defense against targeted attack requires IT professionals to understand how attackers use - and abuse - enterprise design to their advantage.

Learn how advanced attackers break into networks. Understand how attackers use concepts of access and authorization to jump from one computer to the next. Dive into how and why attackers use custom implants and back doors inside an enterprise. Be introduced to the concept of service-centric design - and how it can help improve both security and usability.

To defend against hackers, you must first learn to think like a hacker.

Short and to the point

Great listen, although short it gets to the main topics. Subject matter is mostly for new listeners on the subject. Experienced listeners won't find new topics that they have not covered elsewhere on the subject

academic handbook

this is one of those books which shouldn't be made as an audiobook. It's form and contents is not suitable for reading out loud. you must be really concentrated to follow. Making an audiobook out of a academic handbook which contains tones of lists, examples and definitions is not a simple task.

Like reading a vague book on IT Security

the author talks about many complex scenarios that are briefly explained. Seems like a terms and definitions audiobook, ok if this is the first time hearing this info, not at all what I expected.
blah blah blah...

Very basic

I found the book to be very basic and not that helpful. A lot of super basic examples of what hackers use. If you never used a computer or an electronic device, this book will be good for you.

what can expect from a text book?

typical text book might be more beneficial to read along.

also if this is optional why do I have to o have 15 words?
