I got into cybersecurity because I read books like Winn Schwartau’s “Information Warfare,” William Gibson’s “Neuromancer” and Cliff Stoll’s “Cuckoo’s Egg.” These books gave me a very balanced view of what cybersecurity could be, even though no one called them cyber in the 90s. Until I got Ray Rothrock’s book, “Digital Resilience,” I didn’t have a book I was comfortable with suggesting as a great first read to the next generation of cyber professionals.
If you’ve recently been put in charge of IT or IT operations and didn’t grow up in cyber over the past 20 years, “Digital Resilience” is for you. This book is also equally useful for new CEOs, CFOs or board members who need to understand cyber risk without getting overwhelmed with IT technology or the defeatism of “hackers and nation-states will always get in, so why bother.”
