Summary

Beginners: Each week it seems that some major corporation or another is having serious issues, thanks to the leaks of some malicious hacker. Hearing stories like this can make it seem difficult, if not impossible, for individuals and smaller organizations to ensure their own cybersecurity to keep their own information private. This defeatist attitude is just what the criminals want, however, and the truth of the matter is there is plenty you can do to improve your cybersecurity right now. 

While everyone knows that they need to exhibit some level of caution when interacting with the online world, with the bounds of technology changing all the time, this can be easier said than done. Luckily, this is where this book comes in to discuss the types of cybersecurity you should care about and how to put them to use for you in a way that is proven to be effective in both the short and the long-term. 

Inside you will find easy ways to identify potential security threats at a glance, top cyber threats and how to stop them in their tracks, ways to put the world’s crippling shortage of cybersecurity professional to work for you, tips for ensuring your personal cybersecurity is up to snuff, special considerations to keep in mind when keeping your smart devices secure, and more.

Intermediate: The purpose of this book is to inform listeners about cybersecurity, hackers, and the Internet in general. A lot of people are unaware how hackers can get their privileged information or what security measures they need to take in order to avoid falling victim to these hackers or cybercriminals. 

This book explains the types of threats that people can be exposed to while their device is connected to a network, why hackers engage in the activities that they do, what happens to personal data once it has been compromised, and much more.

Advanced: The book considers the problems of related to cyber security in the individual, as well as the organizational setting. Cyber security is essential to the organization considering the growing technological dependencies that organizations are continuously facing. The book considers the nature of threats of cyber-crime from hacking to data manipulation.

The text also considers intrusions related to corruption of information and its theft where the organization suffers from loss of crucial data. Conversely, there is data manipulation where the information is corrupted without the knowledge of the users in the organization. The book tackles the methods of dealing with these types of intrusions and how to mitigate risk through policy changes.

These policies are known as risk management framework for the organizations to secure their data from the basic levels to advanced security settings. These include the steps for cyber security planning maturity, addressing process risks and elements related to personnel vulnerabilities.

Effective Methods

In this book, you will learn about the fundamental concepts of cyber security. These are facts that form the foundation of your knowledge in cyber security. The knowledge you gain from this book will help you understand the need to enhance your security online. I Love the includition of 3 Books in 1 and can not wait to use this book to help my team rewrite our curriculums. There is so much more to discover in this book. I quickly devoured it in one sitting. I will now go back to dig deep to map out how I am going to implement it with my teaching and to share it with my assistant instructors.

Provides scientific rigor

Cybersecurity is frequently criticized for its lack of scientific rigor. This audio book provides scientific rigor to decision making and strategy within cybersecurity through a solid approach to quantitative risk analysis. By using examples and common tools, Zach guides how to apply probability concepts easily to solve questions that many businesses have regarding cyber security: How do I assess high impact / low occurrence events? How can I see the benefit of my investment in cybersecurity controls? How much is reasonable to invest in cybersecurity controls given my appetite for risk? Where should I invest to minimize my cybersecurity risks? If you are looking for a robust and scientific approach to cybersecurity risk analysis, this is the book for you.

Excellent tips for online safety!

I heard about Zach Webber in a podcast. So after I heard about him, I was so impressed I ordered his book. I am so glad I did - he covers everything you wanted to know and more about cybercrime and how it affects us all. Excellent tips for online safety!

Nice & simple way to get started

The authors present a convincing argument for quantitative methods, and give a nice and simple way to get started. I'd love a sequel diving deeper into the subject, providing more rigorous definitions, and walking through some more involved real-life case studies.

I could barely put it down.

Once I picked the book up, I could barely put it down. It really is a highly audible cyber reference for beginners and intermediate level technology professionals. I find it to be an excellent introduction to several aspects of cybersecurity. The authors provide many helpful ideas and explain what is going on in simple structured terms. I particularly enjoyed the risk management framework for the organizations to secure their data from the basic levels to advanced security settings. Its usually quite easy to find out about defensive postures, but to see so many attack strategies laid out in such a systematic way is quite refreshing.

Cyber security easy guide.

I adapted so much data and occasions about digital security that I once never knew. Very supportive for getting into the field. Spreads the fundamentals and enlightening. Each fledgling should peruse this to get an idea of the extent of the digital security issue and how to assault it.This book is such a great amount of superior to anything some in the weeds thing depicting a particular specialized ways to deal with a particular issue. This book explains to you where to begin and what sorts of specialists you have to enroll and the various parts of digital security that you have to consider. There was plenty of new material definitely worth the purchase. It really gives you a great cybersecurity representation of the model and how it all works together.

Found at the last moment

In the last days of my research on a special topic on cybersecurity, I have discovered a book which was published in November 19th in 2018. The book title is "Cybersecurity: Beginners, Intermediate and Advance Guide in Cybersecurity Measures Effectively" by Zach Webber and narrated by William Bahl. This book talks about cybersecurity threats, attacks, incident respnse procedure, gives detailed information about attack scenarios and each stage of attacks, and also covers security policy topics. On the other hand, the technical language of the book is very understandable with full of examples and good structure. This book was very useful for my research and punlishing my paper and will be very helpful to pass my international certificate exam on Incident Response. I recommend this audio book to all incident responders, penetration testers, network and system security engineers and others who are interested in deep technical topics on cyber security, or willing to start their career in this field.

Great book,

All computers and devices are attacked by viruses, banking networks are attacked regularly, databases of the state are daily trying to be hacked . Someone wants to gain access to our information all the time and it must be reliably protected at all levels, and the more the security expert is aware, the more possible attempts to crack and steal data it can prevent. To protect my data and personal information I’d like to know more about cyber security in order to get my information safe.

Useful to ALL

The author has put together a true primer, useful to both novices and the more knowledgeable among us, on a critical topic of our times - cyber-security. Cyber is everybody's business but it is especially the business of organizations big and small from corporations to NGOs to government agencies. The author provides a clear-eyed, understandable, actionable approach to a subject that is new, rapidly changing and super-complex in its own right but is also often jargon heavy and intentionally made overly complicated by the "experts". Great job!

Time to change that story!

As a cybersecurity professional, I often find it’s difficult to help people understand the depth and breadth of cybersecurity risks if they aren‘t professional technologists. It can be overwhelming. We each have an essential role to play and a responsibility to protect our children, ourselves, our companies, and ultimately, our country. Zach’s book bridges the gap. He’s made cybersecurity accessible for everyone. The message is compelling and clear. This book is very engaging, and I highly recommend it. There are many resources available online and a lot of cybersecurity books written but this book is comprehensive, relevant, and touches upon the key points. Zach has taken his wealth of knowledge and direct experience with adversaries and cyber-criminals to create a book to help everyone create an action plan. I’m buying copies for my friends and family members. I recommend that everyone listen this to empower themselves to become cybersecurity victors. We’ve had far too many cybesecurity victims. It’s time to change that story!

Very helpful

I learned so much information and events about cyber security that I once never knew! Very helpful for getting into the field. Covers the basics and informative. Great work by the authors by moving beyond theory and working to make the advice as practical as possible for the rest of us. Concepts introduced in the book can be put into play on the job tomorrow.

Equal given the time

Absolutely essential for participants in any risk management program who want to get beyond faking things up with 3 level matrices. Quantitative risk analysis requires accuracy, but not absolute precision. This book gives great practical examples and training for getting to as much accuracy as you need for a given application. Study it, and make better decisions for your program.
