The Global Frequency

27 October 2019 | Curated by Matt Devost

What book did you read this year that was absolutely brilliant and should make it into my queue before the end of the year and compiling my best books of 2019 list?  I have one recommendation from a reader ready to go, but wondering what you all might recommend.  This week on the Global Frequency...

Fact or Fiction:
It is always daunting to read a book by colleagues with whom you've had a long association as is the case with "The Fifth Domain" by Richard Clarke and Robert Knake (one of whom is a subscriber to this very list).  This book ads to the great work by these authors over the past decade and adeptly covers the current state of the cyber dynamic from multiple useful angles, including how to raise the cost for cyber attackers.  This is the type of book you give your CEO, CIO, CTO, COO, and CISO to read.  Quality analysis and insightful commentary coupled with thorough citations of pre-existing work - something that is much welcome in a cybersecurity culture where everyone seems to think they are the first to intuit decade old ideas.  Highly recommended.  (Amazon Link)
