Publisher's Summary

If you want to avoid getting hacked, having your information spread, and risking financial loss, then pay attention....

Do you create tons of accounts you will never again visit? 

Does your password contain a sequence of numbers, such as “123456”? 

Do you automatically click all links and download all email attachments coming from your friends? 

This audiobook will show you just how incredibly lucky you are that nobody's hacked you before.

With this handy little book as your starting point, you can finally go from a starry-eyed internet user to a paranoid cybersecurity geek. 

With plenty of examples, this audiobook will show you that the internet is not merely a way to watch cute cat videos; it's a battlefield, a military invention that was accidentally found to be capable of overpowering any threat economically, digitally and politically. 

From the crudest forums to the most sophisticated online services, there is a war going on, and, whether you want it or not, you're involved by the very fact you're here, so better arm yourself with knowledge.

Here’s just a tiny fraction of what you’ll discover:

  • How the internet is held together with a pinky swear
  • How hackers use raunchy photos to eke out private information
  • Examples of preposterous social engineering attacks
  • Equally preposterous defense from those attacks
  • How people in charge don't even realize what hacking means
  • How there's only one surefire way to protect against hacking
  • Research on past, present, and future hacking methods
  • Difference between good and bad hackers
  • How to lower your exposure to hacking
  • Why companies pester you to attach a phone number to an account
  • Why social media is the most insecure way to spend your afternoon

And much, much more....

Would have been better without the political bias

I enjoyed this book. It's a shame it had to be tainted by political bias. Makes me wonder if any other parts of the book were inaccurate due to bias. For what it's worth, they were named troll farms, not bots, they were very effective at avoiding detection, evidence and examples are available if you have a mind to check, and the Cambridge Analytica privacy violations and FB hacking done on behalf of the Trump campaign were very noteworthy if they didn't go against your narrative. There is no room for political bias in this discussion.

Worth the investment for your business!

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.

The Perfect guide

I like the fact the book tells you which step to take in every incident that could happen and also provide what to expect when you got a job as a cyber security. Auther does a great job of explaining complex items in easy to understand language.

This is a precious book

This book and its content will help you to know about how someone could exploit holes in security to gain access to the system, and work with system administrators and developers to fix the flaws and create a more secure system. If you just want someone else to take care of your security for you, then hear my honest opinion and read this book entirely.
