Dan ★★★★★

A fast but comprehensive introduction into cyber security, giving insight into system classification, asset identification, cyber crime and profiling targets.


This series will provide the reader with the technical and theoretical knowledge needed for undertaking different information operations with the focus being on penetration testing. In this book, I am setting the scene for the series, discussing information and its value, defining the information environment and its different domains, discussing crime and cyber criminals and finally, looking at a possible MO of a targeted attack. The by-product of the book is the argument that hacking is completely legal and that without hackers our society would have been at the mercy of criminals
