With clear & methodical approach,

The author is adept at making the complex and often overwhelming topic of cybersecurity understandable. With a clear and methodical approach, he lays out a sensible and comprehensive approach to planning a cybersecurity program, assessing risk, developing manageable processes and implementing real change. Anyone responsible for any aspect of cybersecurity in an organization (which I now understand is everyone) should read this book and follow his lead. We'll all be more secure as a result.

Should have in library.

This is an incredible book that really helps bring cybersecurity to life. Most people hear the word cybersecurity and start to tune out -- it seems like one of those big, overly complicated, technical subjects that people are averse to approaching. However, Attila Kovacs has broken down all of these concepts in a direct, understandable, and oftentimes funny, way.

Awesome

If you're looking for a broad overview of cybersecurity issues, covered in layman's terms, this course is a good resource. For those looking for in an in-depth look at the technical details behind why cybersecurity issues exist and how exactly cybersecurity threats and principles work, you will be let down.

I am glad I bought this course

I found the topic of this course of lectures absolutely fascinating. I admit that I know little of computers and cyber security, so these lectures were very beneficial for me. Professor Attila Kovacs is a great narrator which makes listening to his words even more enjoyable.

Nice

I really thought I was pretty savvy when it comes to computer security. Was I ever wrong! This series was fascinating from beginning to end. The Stuxnet virus lecture (lecture 1) was really amazing. The hardware vulnerability lecture was disturbing. The section on password vulnerability made me super paranoid, and has made me change all my passwords to ones that are much more secure.

Wow, this course was an eye opener!

This is my first review of an audio download from Audible. (I say "audio download" because this is more like a classroom style lecture series rather than the more common audio book.) Until now I thought it totally unnecessary to add yet another me-too review to other books I've listened to with dozens to hundreds of similar reviews already posted. But since this course has been lightly reviewed I wanted to give my input for others considering this lecture series.

Covers All Dimensions of Cybersecurity

As a computer professional, the comprehensive nature of this course was illuminating. Rather than focus only on the technical aspects of cyber security, the professor covered political, cultural, legal, and international relations perspectives. With excellent overview of the issues and challenges as well as practical discussions on ways forward, this course is valuable for everyone who uses the internet. That is, essentially for everyone.

Very helpful and informative

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

Awesome sound!

Fantastic listen! Learned a lot and feel definitely more comfortable in the crypto space. I’d recommend this book to anyone curious in simply understanding the ecosystem of cryptos. Comes with a downloadable work to better retain knowledge also. Super cool!

Great and informative and current!

This audio-book on cybersecurity is excellent. It touches so many topics that are current and relevant in todays electronic world. This is not a light any means, but it is something that people who deal with technology should listen it. I don't mean IT people, I mean us average people. There is so much that we don't know that we don't know and this audio-book really is enlightening. It made me a little more paranoid than I was, however, after listening it, I also felt a little stronger. A little more aware is never a bad thing. And now, I'm even more capable. I still have a long way to go, but now I know I'm on a good path!

Understandable concepts

I've know Attila Kovacs for many years. He has the ability to distill complicated ideas into understandable concepts that a layman can understand and he has done so with this important subject matter. None of us want to believe our company is venerable to a cyber attack. We are too small to worry about this, why would a hacker care about my data but If you own or operate a business this is a must listen.

Simply the best book

This is quite simply the best book I’ve ever listen on Cybersecurity. Chris has an engaging writing style that keeps a dense topic lively while packing the book with invaluable information and other reference information to study on your own. Even if you are completely new to the subject, he makes it accessible. Thanks for a terrific book!

Invested time will be rewarded

Zach should get a big ‘thank you’ from everyone working in security and risk as his works are challenging the approach to risk management and improving quantitative risk and security thinking, metric generation and reporting. This is not a light listen, but your invested time will be rewarded as your thinking is expanded and your skill set enriched.

Very simplified

This is definitely a great listen mainly for newbies in Cybersecurity security, very simplified and well it’s not a big book so be listen in a short time. A must listen to understand more on numerous topics of cybersecurity and addressing different attack and defense scenarios in the real world.
