MEDIA REVIEWS
"Cyber security has become such a broad subject it is always welcome when someone pulls it together and explains the jargon, highlights the importance of the human in the loop and encourages those from a variety of backgrounds to take up a career. I can't think of any other book that deals with all these aspects in such an understandable way." -- Professor Alan Woodward, University of Surrey
"Jessica's specialty, and gift, is taking the seemingly complex world of cyber security and making it simple for anyone to understand. If you are interested in pursuing a career in cyber security regardless of your background, or just want to learn more about this topic, I could not recommend this book more." -- Lance Spitzner, Director SANS Security Awareness
"An absolute triumph. Whether you are simply curious to understand more about a fast-moving industry that touches all our lives, or considering a career in cyber security, this lively book is an enthralling guide. I defy anyone to read this book and not want to share its sound advice. I loved it." -- Maggie Philbin OBE, Broadcaster and CEO TeenTech
"Jessica Barker brings cyber security to life in a highly engaging way. She punctures the traditional techno-babble and covers a wide range of topics in a way that will instil confidence, especially for anyone thinking of a career in cyber security." * Robert Hannigan CMG, former Director of GCHQ and Chair of COBRA *
