No More Magic Wands: Transformative Cybersecurity Change for Everyone by [Finney, George]



Inside the Book

Title: NO MORE MAGIC WANDS
Author: George Finney
Publisher: Independent
Pages: 130
Genre: Business/Leadership/Management/Cybersecurity/Technology

 Once upon a time there was a company that made magic wands, but when they were hacked all the magic in the world couldn’t prevent their data from being stolen. If that company had a chance for a clean start, what would they have done differently? The unlikely hero isn’t a security guy. She’s a business elf who makes it her mission to change the way her company does business from the top down.

Most books on Cybersecurity are written for highly technical professionals, focus on specific compliance regulations, or are intended for reference. No More Magic Wands is different...it takes complex security concepts and puts them into practice in easy to read, relateable stories.


No More Magic Wands is available at AMAZON

MY THOUGHTS
 What do you do when your data is stolen? Cyber Security is a major concern and the author puts a little fun into this serious subject as he gives information on the subject.  Information the normal person can understand.  It doesn't matter how good a security system you have, it's all in the people involved.   It takes humans to operate the computers, the alarms, the intel, everything.  Whenever there are people involved, mistakes are made, whether by accident or by purpose.  Thee author shows how the system can be knowingly or unknowingly entered..  This was done by a virus called Stuxnet.  Security doesn't land on one person's shoulders but on all.  It takes a team to protect data and without that team, it's at stake.  What I liked about the story was the combining of magic and animals into the technology.   It all may seem rather technical but the author uses the animals and the magic as a way to learn with each chapter.  It doesn't matter if it is one person's information or a big important company,  data can be stolen, security systems can be hacked and information can be stolen.    There is a moral to every story and this story certainly has one.  The author gives summaries at the end of each chapter, tips and advice.  It is written in a mythical way but that takes it into a level that the novice can grasp.



I received a copy of this book from the author and PUYB and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
