Amazon Review for Cybersecurity Attack and Defense Strategies ( As of May 2019)

Amazon Review for Cybersecurity Attack and Defense Strategies

This book is an easy read on a complex set of topics. Once I picked the book up, I could barely put it down. It really is a highly readable cyber reference for beginners and intermediate level technology professionals. I find it to be an excellent introduction to several aspects of cybersecurity.

The authors provide many helpful diagrams and explain what is going on in simple structured terms. I particularly enjoyed the red/blue contrasts for every use case. Its usually quite easy to find out about defensive postures, but to see so many attack strategies laid out in such a systematic way is quite refreshing.


Finally a cyber security book worth reading! This book is packed with excellent advice and a deep appreciation for the depth of the problems facing the practicing cyber security professional. Not only is the Red Team/Blue Team focus well done, but there is very good discussion of the Incident Response process per se.

A must buy for anyone interesting in understanding how cyber attacks are completed. This book touches on many important topics that will just wet your appetite for future topics. It does not go into too much detail making it an relatively easy read. Highly recommended!


Excellent book 100%

Cybersecurity - Attack and Defense Strategies - Second Edition
Dr Erdal Ozkaya

In the last days of my research on a special topic on cybersecurity, I have discovered a book which was published just in January in 2018. The book title is “Cybersecurity Attack and Defense Strategies” by Erdal Ozkaya and Yuri Diogenes. This book talks about cybersecurity threats, attacks, incident respnse procedure, gives detailed information about attack scenarios and each stage of attacks, and also covers security policy topics.

On the other hand, the technical language of the book is very understandable with full of examples and good structure. This book was very useful for my research and punlishing my paper and will be very helpful to pass my international certificate exam on Incident Response. I recommend this book to all incident responders, penetration testers, network and system security engineers and others who are interested in deep technical topics on cyber security, or willing to start their career in this field.

This is basically a ‘Cyber Security For Dummies’ handbook, not in the sense that it talks down to you but rather that it offers a comprehensive overview of the cyber security landscape. It is packed with easy to digest information and a plethora of references to further your knowledge of the subjects at hand. It doesn’t go into many technical practices, but gives great detail into the tools and concepts professionals in this field need to be aware of.


Amazing book about Cybersecurity. A must read for every who want to learn about cybersecurity. Walks you through the beginnings and gives you the latest insights about real threats in our ever changing IT world. Highly recommended.

It is very important to see the panaromic view of the realm of cyber security. What are the possible strategies for defending your system? Here I found detailed yet clean answers. The authors melt their technical knowledge with organizational strategies which is unique in its way.
