“Professor DeFranco has taken a very complex subject and distilled
the knowledge into a very effective guide … [and] has chosen a series
of topics that connect to the real world of cyber security, incident
response, and investigation. I think the book will make a valuable
resource tool for anyone looking to get involved in the eld,as well
as those with years of experience.”
Robert L. Maley, Founder, Strategic CISO
Most organizations place a high priority on keeping data secure, but
not every organization invests in training its engineers in understanding
the security risks involved in using or developing technology. Designed for
the non-security professional, What Every Engineer Should Know About
Cyber Security and Digital Forensics is an overview of the eld of cyber
security.
Exploring the cyber security topics that every engineer should understand,
the book discusses:
• Network security
• Personal data security
• Cloud computing
• Mobile computing
• Preparing for an incident
• Incident response
• Evidence handling
• Internet usage
• Law and compliance
• Security and forensic certications
Application of the concepts is demonstrated through short case studies
of real-world incidents chronologically delineating related events. The book
also discusses certications and reference manuals in the area of information
security and digital forensics. By mastering the principles in this volume,
engineering professionals will not only better understand how to mitigate
the risk of security incidents and keep their data secure, but also understand
how to break into this expanding eld.
