Good approach

Every beginner should listen to this to get a concept of the scope of the cybersecurity problem and how to attack it. This audiobook is so much better than some in the weeds thing describing specific technical approaches to specific problems.

This is a really fascinating audiobook

This is a really fascinating audiobook on the discipline of cybersecurity. I originally listen, given the increasing number of stories that were appearing in the national news relating to matters of cybersecurity, so was curious to find out more.

Highly recommend

Cyber Security for Beginners is a book I would highly recommend, if only to begin to understand how Cyber Security affects every person and why we need to be that little more vigilant online. I think the real bonus was the personable nature the author put across in his style of writing. He was humble, patient with his explanations and even humorous, at times.

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

Well Cybersecurity book for Beginners...

Being a person who is unashamedly lazy when it comes to listening, 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.

In depth and informative

The audio-book really breaks down the fundamentals of cyber security and what makes a basic program. There were a few pronunciations that the narrator could’ve done better on but since I’m assuming he doesn’t have a background in IT, it’s understandable. The content is straightforward and while I wish the author gave more examples, it’s still a solid audio-book.

Outstanding

Fascinating book, it provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of cyber security and the incredible challenges facing cyber security professionals. Very detailed, the authors go to great lengths to point out some very scary vulnerabilities and they also dispel some fears that are probably overblown. Very even handed in how they approache political perspectives for cyber strategies. The narrator does an excellent job. Highly recommended.

The start of a Cyber-security journey of awakening

Through this excellent work (which I now have on Audio and physical format..hmmm...maybe Kindle next?), Attila Kovacs had made Cybersecurity human, none geeky and thoroughly understandable. Cybersecurity strategy has at last been humanised a laid out in a format most anyone can grasp and action. I cannot wait to REALize what I have learned from this audio-book.

Understandable concepts

I've know Attila 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 audio-book

This is quite simply the best audio-I’ve ever listen on Cybersecurity. Chris has an engaging writing style that keeps a dense topic lively while packing the audio-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 Attila for a terrific audio-book!

Invested time will be rewarded

Attila 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.
