Big Breaches: Cybersecurity Lessons for Everyone

Buy
Neil and Moudy have written a book that will help us reduce our exposure as a society to future “big breaches” but also to many of the technology risks we face in an increasingly digitized society. They do this not by presenting a “recipe” for success but by making the subject accessible to audiences who are not usually addressed by cybersecurity books.

Cybersecurity, or more broadly computer and information security, is now very clearly a concern for more than just the security specialist or the software engineer. That’s been true for a while. But while the technical bookshelves are full of security textbooks and guides, I don’t think we’ve yet seen the range of material which would help bring a greater variety of backgrounds and professions into the security tent. Policy and political analysis or hacker human interest stories are increasingly common subject matter for the publishing industry. They are important as the field grows, but I see in Big Breaches a category that blazes a different and challenging trail—bridging the divide between the deep technical details of attacks and the practical technical, corporate, and societal actions which would make us less vulnerable. It is not easy to summarize or simplify while remaining accurate and useful, but that is what this book does. I hope Big Breaches is but one of the many books that will continue to fill this gap of understanding.
