Informative and entertaining

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a great overview of the cyber security landscape. It was engaging and prompted me to think a long new lines as I mull over the vulnerabilities and challenges in my organization. I am a senior technology manager in a large global organisation and cyber security is managed by others who are professionals in that domain. So for me this was a useful adrenalin shot to get more background and help me get more from my engagements with those professionals. I myself am in technology infrastructure and I did not pick up on any material issues with the technical content - some of it is simplified so it appeals to as wide an audience as possible. It is NOT a technical book but a high level overview of a large, complex domain. Technical people should listen to this book so they get a stronger appreciation of the socio-political landscape to balance the technicalities of cyber security or infrastructure.

Highly recommended.
