Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Given the scope of conventional warfare and cyber warfare, at under 150 pages, the book takes a very high-level approach to the topic…For those looking for a general introduction to the topic, The Basics of Cyber Warfare: Understanding the Fundamentals of Cyber Warfare in Theory and Practice is a good place to start."—RSA Conference.com, March 11, 2013 "This is a thin book on a broad and deep topic, which gave me pause initially, but as it turns out, the book is thoughtfully written and will definitely be useful for educating managers and security professionals who need to broaden their thinking beyond physical security. It provides a dozen pages or so on each of the big topics in computer network security…This book won’t give you everything you need to know for incident handling or certification, but it can serve as a first step in a manager’s education in computer network security."—Security Management.com
