Summary

An accessible introduction to cybersecurity concepts and practices.

Cybersecurity Essentials provides a comprehensive introduction to the field, with expert coverage of essential topics required for entry-level cybersecurity certifications. An effective defense consists of four distinct challenges: securing the infrastructure, securing devices, securing local networks, and securing the perimeter. Overcoming these challenges requires a detailed understanding of the concepts and practices within each realm. This book covers each challenge individually for greater depth of information, with real-world scenarios that show what vulnerabilities look like in everyday computing scenarios. Each part concludes with a summary of key concepts, review questions, and hands-on exercises, allowing you to test your understanding while exercising your new critical skills.  

Cybersecurity jobs range from basic configuration to advanced systems analysis and defense assessment. This book provides the foundational information you need to understand the basics of the field, identify your place within it, and start down the security certification path.  

  • Learn security and surveillance fundamentals 
  • Secure and protect remote access and devices 
  • Understand network topologies, protocols, and strategies 
  • Identify threats and mount an effective defense 

Cybersecurity Essentials gives you the building blocks for an entry level security certification and provides a foundation of cybersecurity knowledge.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

basic to Intermediate average of security

I can listen to it over and over I have almost 60 70% of security questions memorize so it's good to listen to it's not bad I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to get a good understanding of security from project manager to business admin or an entry-level desktop or security person

Not made for audio...

There are challenges in the book that are impossible to do with only sound. The narrator's voice was monotonous as well.

Good Material / Tough to digest in audio format

Good content and reader was solid. As should be expected for a resource / study guide it is a bit tough to digest in audio format without visuals etc
