For most of the past decade, Edward Amoroso has overseen Cyber Security for one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world AT&T. In his role as Chief Security Officer, hes helped to discover and counter virtually every conceivable type of malicious threat that has been targeted at computers and networks around the world. In this new book, Amoroso brings his wealth of experience and expertise chasing computer hackers to the lay reader and he leaves no stone untouched! Some of his themes may be uncomfortable, but they simply must be examined in order to gain a proper perspective on our growing risk.
In this book, readers will find themselves absorbed into Amorosos endless anecdotes with real people, governments, and businesses. Youll laugh as Amoroso relates his time wandering around the office of a political party, finding their router unprotected. Youll wince as he explains the Cyber Security ignorance hes witnessed among so many corporate IT chiefs.
Some of the stories are shocking, others a bit amusing. But in all cases, the underlying message is clear: Cyber Security plays a fundamental role in the way we live our lives. And understanding its basics is critical for citizens, lawmakers, and business people around the world.
