“The topic of cybersecurity has been covered with broad strokes in several books, but this work by the National Cybersecurity Institute at Excelsior College delves into specific areas in considerable detail. This book will help us understand the challenges and better prepare for our future.”
—From the Foreword by Donald Rumsfeld, 13th and 21st U.S. Secretary of Defense
