Corporate Computer Security (4th Edition)

Interestingly, I took Enterprise Security in college after I passed CompTIA Security+ so this has been a great review. I've even learned several things that that exam doesn't cover. There's a lot of emphasis on frameworks and I appreciate the little review questions after every subsection as it ensures you understood what you just read. I got the Kindle version and it's been very helpful.

A Criminology of Policing and Security Frontiers

Policing and security provision are subjects central to criminology. Yet there are newer and neglected forms that are currently unscrutinised. By examining the work of community safety officers, ambassador patrols, conservation officers, and private police foundations, who operate on and are animated by a frontier, this book reveals why criminological inquiry must reach beyond traditional conceptual and methodological boundaries in t...

As I read Deep State, I had to continually remind myself that what I was reading was not a novel.

Cyber Mercenaries: The State, Hackers, and Power

This book does an excellent job breaking the mold of current thinking by "cyber" analysts--that is, that there are cybercriminals, and there are APT actors, and you must identify, pursue, and defeat one or the other. Hogwash. Cyber criminals (or contractors, or whatever you want to call them, depending on your perspective in the global arms race for dominance in cyberspace) and APT actors not only operate in the same environment, but...

AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Study Guide: CLF-C01 Exam

Pretty broad coverage of topics. Without naming any other AWS books or authors, I'll state here that I cycled through at least 5 on the Kindle store and they were absolutely terrible(typos galore) and a few of them literally looked like the material was lifted from official AWS docs and attempts made to rewrite. Based on the author names and the presence of so many abominable typos within the first few pages of the books, I suspect t...

The Logic of Irregular War

The five well-informed contributors to this slender volume bring varied backgrounds to asymmetric warfare. They have filled a variety of government, academic, and think-tank positions. Berman’s historical introduction underscores the global nature of such wars. Irregular war “is as old as conflict itself.” However, it “came of age” only at the end of the Cold War. Contemporary weaponry has made asymmetric wars far more lethal. The fo...
