More about Jessica Barker

Cyber security has become such a broad subject it is always welcome when someone pulls it together and explains the jargon, highlights the importance of the human in the loop and encourages those from a variety of backgrounds to take up a career. I can't think of any other book that deals with all these aspects in such an understandable way.
