Cybersecurity Fundamentals explains detailed concepts within computer networks and computer security in an easy-to-understand way, making it the perfect introduction to the topic. The book covers fundamental issues, using practical examples and real-world applications to give readers a rounded understanding of the subject and how it is applied.
