CYBERSECURITY IS JOB SECURITY!!
An Interesting and Captivating Book with Practical Tips, Real-Life Examples, & Visually Appealing Illustrations
Security is no longer a 'nice to have', in fact security, privacy and compliance by design, are quickly becoming the building blocks of any important project, in other words security and compliance cannot be an afterthought. It has to be baked into the project from the very beginning. This is where we see a lot of challenges because more often than not the project teams don't have the knowledge or the skills to do this.
I am so glad that Niharika and Sanjay have taken it upon themselves to write this book to impart these skills to project leaders. If you are a product or program manager or an IT or business leader or an enterprise architect, and you can master the art of driving secure practices for your project or product, you will stand out from the rest. This book is a great way to get you started on the journey. Being a very visual person, it is wonderful to see so many wonderful illustrations which make complex concepts easier to understand. This book is a must read for you and for your entire IT team so let us empower ourselves with enough knowledge about cyber security to make the right choices at every step of our journey.
This book is imperative for project and program leaders to read. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about Cybersecurity. Kudos to Niharika and Sanjay for taking the initiative to write this book and spread cybersecurity awareness, to help the world become a safer place. A “must-read” book for all ages, everyone should have this book in their library.
