Summary

The audiobook considers the problems related to cybersecurity in the individual as well as the organizational setting. Cybersecurity is essential to the organization considering the growing technological dependencies that organizations are continuously facing. The audiobook considers the nature of threats of cybercrime 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 audiobook 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 cybersecurity planning maturity, addressing process risks and elements related to personnel vulnerabilities. Technological risks form the last part of the audiobook, as advancing processes need to be considered for the future of cybersecurity in organizations.

Enjoyed it

I found the book to be a good experience, although networking has never been my strongest field in terms of computing. Through it, I have learned what cybersecurity is, the Cybersecurity and Advanced System Security, Establishing a Risk Management Framework, Addressing Process Risks, People and Policy Risks, Data Manipulation Concerns, and Addressing Technology Risks.

As always Zach teaches in a nice and clear manner, starting by going through some basics before moving on to some novice/intermediate stuff. Most of the networking concepts are explained by the lecturer really well. The sections detailing how we are tracked online and how to mitigate those methods with various tools and browser security are among the sections that I found most interesting.

Overall, I enjoyed the course and I would recommend it to anybody who at least has some basic knowledge/concepts of networking.

Highly recommended

This course brought me many discoveries and made me think about my safety. Being a beginner is a great way to learn Cyber Security. All the topics were explained so well. I able to understand almost pretty much everything and even he has explained everything in an effective manner so that everyone can get the things easily.

The fascinating subject matter can be complex, however, the author does an excellent job of explaining challenging concepts in an easy-to-understand teacher-to-student dialogue. In my opinion, it is necessary for people working as system administrators.

If you’re new to cybersecurity then this book is for you. It explains what to expect and so on. Overall, I learned a lot from this book. Highly recommended!

Very informative

This book was very informative and a little bit overwhelming at times. I learned enough to know how to improve my network security and it was well worth the money. So far, I am enjoying the personal security tokens to leave in emails, drives, and laptops that will alert you when they are opened.

Love it

As an information security consultant catering services to organizations, this may not be completely applicable as it talks more about the security measures an individual should take to protect themselves. However, the book was easy to understand and written in a way that even beginners can grasp easily.

Thankful

While I am very well versed in security, the author manages to come up with interesting bits that I did not know. Well worth every penny. If you have any interest in real cybersecurity, for any reason, this course will take you from "ignorant of anything" to knowing more than most of the "experts" out in the world.
