highly recommended

Being a person who is unashamedly lazy when it comes to reading, I knew I was looking for a audio-book that would keep my interest and not get too bogged down in the jargon and technical terms of Cyber Security. After all, I was a beginner and I didn’t want to overwhelm myself any more than I knew it would be, being such an extensive subject.

Introduction to several aspects of cybersecurity

It really is a highly listenable 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 diagrams and explain what is going on in simple structured terms. I particularly enjoyed the red/blue contrasts for every use case. 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.

A must-listen for anyone

This audio-book is a must-listen for anyone trying to understand priority in Cyber Security operations. The authors take you through the basics of measurement, how risk has been misapplied in the cyber security industry, and makes recommendations for how to improve risk communication with executives. My favorite part is the discussion on Loss Exceedance Curves.
