Practical Cyber Threat Intelligence – New Book (17th)

Practical Cyber Threat Intelligence

This is my seventeenth book with my name on the cover and like its predecessors, this book represents several years of in-depth research, analysis, and real-life work experience.

While working as a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO )in a world class cybersecurity firm (Comodo Cybersecurity), spending time with cybersecurity communities, authoring a book means “stealing time from the family, working till very late (its4 AM right now).

This book could never have been made on the shelves without my family’s support. As I did in all my previous books, I would like to dedicate this book again, to my wife Arzu, my son Jemre and my daughter Azra. Their endless love and support are just motivating me to do even more…

My parents never had the chance to go to school or learn how to read and write, but they always encouraged me to do more.

Thank you, my dear family, friends, and mentors.

Thank you, BPB Publishing and thank you Deepayan, we met and worked at Microsoft and Standard Chartered together. You are always a valuable team member…
