"... might be useful as an overview for the lay person or beginner…" --Security Management
"The book explores the right subjects. It provides the right warnings, focal points, and pitfalls. It stays clearly away from technical details, but does, for instance, present tools with strengths and weaknesses. Unlike other books, it does look at the situation outside of the US. In forensics, you need to prove competence beyond doubt. For a team manager, this book is not a bad start for building that proof." --ComputingReviews.com, July/August 2014
"Ultimately, this book is about protecting the organisation – and not just against the hackers...Getting your response right is all about teamwork, and this book is a helpful guide for putting together the best team for the job." --Network Security, February 2014
