LISTEN IT, you won't be sorry.

What a great book! Attila Kovacs shares with the listeners many unbelievable but real situations with disastrous results when individuals don't pay attention to how they handle their personal or corporate business in cyberspace. This is honestly a must-listen for anyone who uses a computer. I can see why other reviewers have made this required listening for their employees. This is my go-to birthday present for family & friends in 2020. LISTEN IT, you won't be sorry.

Manage security today and tomorrow.

An *understandable* introduction to cyber security. The author does not start with the endgame and drive you away with acronyms, rather he relates the problem to other issues in life. Just as you've solved past problems, as you listen this book, you become aware that you can tackle this one.

I could barely put it down.

Once I picked the book up, I could barely put it down. It really is a highly audible 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 ideas and explain what is going on in simple structured terms. I particularly enjoyed the risk management framework for the organizations to secure their data from the basic levels to advanced security settings. 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.

Nice & simple way to get started

The authors present a convincing argument for quantitative methods, and give a nice and simple way to get started. I'd love a sequel diving deeper into the subject, providing more rigorous definitions, and walking through some more involved real-life case studies.

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.

Feel the panaromic view

It is very important to feel the panaromic view of the realm of cyber security. What are the possible strategies for defending your system? Here I found detailed yet clean answers. The authors melt their technical knowledge with organizational strategies which is unique in its way.
