Very informative book on cybersecurity. For some may be a rude awakening on the problems the cyberworld deals with today. Enjoyed reading each chapter which gave various perspectives of the hackers of today

Some techniques are well know, email phishing for instance, hoever the book covers lesser know topics with very good detail. This is a fantastic tool on how to inform people what can and truly does happen and how you can easily prevent most of problems.
