Slow and steady wins the race.

It was interesting and useful to learn about Cybersecurity, I know how to fix it and how to guard cybersecurity now. I think that this is really an essential topic, especially in our time. I agree with the author that cybersecurity is a marathon, not a race, slow and steady wins the race.

after listen I found clarity

I am relevantly new to the cybersecurity field. As a network and security student, I found this to be very helpful. It explained different varieties of interventions, how to splatter and check them. I found the entry-level jobs to be helpful when job searching. Overall, a must-listen and overview.

Maybe a good overview?

It gave a lot of brief descriptions of some computer sessions. It might be a good audible if you're very very new to cybersecurity and want to know a little about what's involved. You won't learn how to do anything though. There is no “this is how to preserve your network.” Anyone with a little experience won't find anything in this work.
