The sophisticated methods used in recent high-profile cyber incidents have driven many to need to understand how such security issues work. Demystifying the complexity often associated with information assurance, Cyber Security Essentials provides a clear understanding of the concepts behind prevalent threats, tactics, and procedures. To accomplish this, the team of security professionals from VeriSign’s iDefense Security Intelligence Services supply an extensive review of the computer security landscape.
This is not your typical security book. Other books of this genre exist to prepare you for certification or to teach you how to use a tool, but none explains the concepts behind the security threats impacting enterprises every day in a manner and format conducive to quick understanding.
It is similar to a reference book, an encyclopedia of sorts, but not quite. It is not comprehensive enough to be an encyclopedia. This book does not cover every security concept from A to Z, just the ones that we have observed having the most impact on the large-enterprise network battle.
It is similar to books like the Unix Power Tools series, but again not quite. Those authors collected small snippets of practical information about how to run a UNIX machine. This book has no code samples. It is not a “how-to” book on hacking skills.
This book, instead, covers key security concepts and what they mean to the enterprise in an easyto-read format that provides practical information and suggestions for common security problems. The essays in this book are short, designed to bring a reader up to speed on a subject very quickly.
They are not 70-page treatises, but rather high-level explanations about what the issue is, how it works, and what mitigation options are available.
It is similar to the Physician’s Desktop Reference (PDR), but once again not quite. The PDR is an annually published aggregation of drug manufacturers’ prescription information.
