Product description

Review

''How can the little guys anticipate and prepare for a potential hack? For starters, they should read Schober's book--which he could have just as easily named 'The Original Hacker's Dictionary For Small Business Owners'.''--Forbes Magazine

''Cybersecurity Bible for small business owners.'' --Steve Morgan of Cybersecurity Business Report

''Hacked Again is a well written book that I recommend without hesitation--especially as a primer for business owners or even government business pros who want to understand what really happens before, during and after data breaches or security incidents that occur regarding your own accounts.'' --Dan Lohrmann, Government Technology

''I will be incorporating Hacked Again into my cybersecurity courses. There is no other book that lays this great of a cybersecurity foundation, and also details recent hacks of major corporations.''--Professor Jonathan S. Weissman, RIT/FLCC/Nazareth College

''…buy them a copy of the book, write an inscription in the cover, and ten days later ask them what they have learned.'' --Stephen Northcutt, SANS Technology Institute

''Now I understand the urgency of strong passwords! I will recommend your book to my friends, it was a good read.'' --Mike Case, Globalstar Director, Gateway Engineering --Reviews

''Scott Schober's small business got hacked, and hacked again. The harrowing experience led him to write a book -- Hacked Again, which could just as easily have been called the Cybersecurity Bible for small business owners.

''Schober starts out by explaining the exact details of how his corporate checking account got hacked -- which led him to switch banks, only to have his new checking account hacked. He helps cyber novices to understand what a hack is, how to recover from it, and the cybercriminal mentality which motivates the hacks.

''Although the book tells a story -- it is broken down into chapters that cover one aspect of cybersecurity after the next, which are specific to small businesses. The first thing readers learn about is the hacker's practice of social engineering, the shady art of manipulating others into sharing their personal identities, credit card digits, and other information (or stealing that same information).'' --Steve Morgan, CSO Magazine

''A self-help guide to understanding cybersecurity jargon recently hit the shelves.

''Scott Schober, a New Jersey small businessman, suffered two online robberies committed by cyber thieves -- and now he is fighting back... with a book titled 'Hacked Again'. Schober -- who has become somewhat of a cybersecurity celebrity -- is arming other small business owners with the knowledge to fight back in the growing war against hackers.

''Cybercrime costs are projected to reach $2 trillion by 2019, quadruple the costs suffered by businesses affected by digital break-ins and thefts in 2015. Large corporations and government agencies are not the only targets. According to Microsoft MSFT +0.48%, 20% of small to mid sized businesses have been cyber crime targets. Small businesses may face the greatest risks because they don't have full-time staff dedicated to protecting against cyber attacks, and dealing with the post-attack disruptions.

''How can the little guys anticipate and prepare for a potential hack? For starters, they should read Schober's book -- which he could have just as easily named 'The Original Hacker's Dictionary For Small Business Owners'.

'''Hacked Again' is less about Schober's firm getting hacked repeatedly, and more about informing readers on topics including: What is a hacker?; What motivates hackers?; Where do hackers hang out (online)?; and how can hackers be detected of lurking around websites where they don't belong?'' --Steve Morgan, Forbes Magazine
