Released today, The Digital Big Bang: The Hard Stuff, The Soft Stuff, And the Future of Cybersecurity, explores approaching cybersecurity like science. Like the scientists of centuries ago, who led the search for knowledge about the cosmic big bang, space and the science behind it, this book includes thoughtful observations, hypothesis, and conclusions on cyberspace and the ‘digital’ big bang from many of today’s cybersecurity leaders, making it a must-read for CISOs. The book is authored by Phil Quade, who brings three decades of security experience in numerous private and government organizations.
