“Paul Ferrillo and Chris Veltsos have written the definitive book for understanding the commercial, national security, and governance implications of cyber threats to the global digital economy. Their book is a compendium of insights, advice, and resources for those wanting to understand both technologies and policies shaping the rapidly evolving world of cybersecurity. As someone with a passion for emerging technologies and their exponential impact on society, I found the chapter on cybersecurity automation, orchestration, machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence to be particularly informative and illuminating. The authors state that “Cybersecurity is and will remain a national priority for years to come, and a business priority for years to come”. There have already been 15 percent more data breaches in the first half of 2016, compared to the last six months of 2015 and that trend will likely continue. Indeed, as the authors note, we are all one hack away from disaster. Reading their book is an essential first step in helping prevent and mitigate that potential disaster.”

From regulation, to cloud security and incident response, Ferrillo and Veltsos cover significant ground—with a relevant look ahead toward how AI and machine learning can help solve some of these challenges. Any director or c-suite executive would benefit from understanding the concepts as presented here.”
