High Tech Explained in Plain English

I love that the author takes such an immensely technical topic and writes it so it's easy for anyone to understand. There's a dictionary in the audible and definitions within the chapters explaining what various acronyms mean and how the vocabulary is applied.

I'm always nervous about someone hacking into my account & stealing my identity. This gave me some helpful tips about when it's safe to log into a public Wifi & some tricks to make it harder for anyone to get access to my info when I do.

Excellent introduction

Mr Quinn Kiser does excellent work at doing an introduction about the general concepts of cybersecurity. In my opinion, this audible is written for a "business-like" kind of listener and not so much for a technical person.

A well thought out, intelligently written audible on digital security issues and how to combat them, both before and after an attack. Great use of the index of terms with their definitions at the end of the audible.

Perfect for beginners

Looks like it would be ok for someone who doesn't have any issues with Cybersecurity. For those who have a minor amount of savvy regarding the issue, you might want to look elsewhere. Again, it does say Cybersecurity for Beginners.
