Most organizations place a high priority on keeping data secure, but not every organization invests in training its engineers or employees in understanding the security risks involved when using or developing technology. Designed for the non-security professional, What Every Engineer Should Know About Cyber Security and Digital Forensics is an overview of the field of cyber security.
Exploring the cyber security topics that every engineer should understand, the book discusses:
Application of the concepts is demonstrated through short case studies of real-world incidents chronologically delineating related events. The book also discusses certifications and reference manuals in the area of cyber security and digital forensics.
By mastering the principles in this volume, engineering professionals will not only better understand how to mitigate the risk of security incidents and keep their data secure, but also understand how to break into this expanding profession.
"Professor DeFranco has taken a very complex subject and distilled the knowledge into a very effective guide … [and] has chosen a series of topics that connect to the real world of cyber security, incident response, and investigation. I think the book will make a valuable resource tool for anyone looking to get involved in the field, as well as those with years of experience."
