For decision makers who have the responsibility to establish applied automotive cybersecurity in the organization in order to comply with the applicable standards and regulations, this book offers a unique opportunity to grasp the big picture
Cybersecurity is a new topic for the automotive industry. The relevant standards and regulations (such as ISO/SAE 21434 or UN Regulations No. 155 / 156) are only now being published, but at the same time they must be applied immediately. This makes it all the more important to establish a comprehensive and holistic understanding of automotive cybersecurity quickly and efficiently. This book is designed to fulfill this requirement. For example, with:
Not only has the expertise of numerous specialists in automotive cybersecurity been included in this reference book. Also, the content has been consistently compiled to ensure a high level of practical relevance, comprehensibility and clarity.

He has many years of practical experience not only in engineering but also in the management of technically challenging development projects for leading players in the automotive industry, including BMW, Audi, Rolls Royce, and others.
How can ISO/SAE 21434 be applied in practice in the automotive industry? It is clear that the application of the standard will be mandatory to stay competitive. The standard (which has been officially published end of August 2021) is just beginning to find its way onto the desks of those responsible for cybersecurity in the automotive industry. This makes it all the more important to begin intensive familiarization with the new Automotive Cybersecurity requirements now.

Made for cybersecurity managers, practitioners and anyone who wants a hands-on introduction to the most important standard for cybersecurity in the automotive industry.
This short book provides many good ideas that could aid any cybersecurity professional in influencing good practices within their organization. The stories transform the normal tech talk to everyday words aiding those not familiar with the underlying concepts. The chapter summaries, takeaways and questions provide further insights on key technology and security concepts.
Each chapter contains a summary, takeaways, and questions after the story. These are not part of the story and provide the reader with a real-world explanation of the concepts covered in the chapter. Each has valuable nuggets of information provided by Mr. Finney, an experienced chief information security officer in running a security program. The takeaways are high-level concepts that should be considered by any CISO. While the questions seem to be more academic, they are good for any cybersecurity professional to ensure his or her program is on the right track. In reviewing the book, I often jump right to these as a quick reminder of the concepts covered in the stories.
Mr. Finney concludes the book with an afterward. For me, this seems like an extension of the introduction. Before reading the story portion of the book, readers may want to jump right to this section to further understand critical cybersecurity concepts covered throughout the book. Mr. Finney provides nine habits to enable an organization-wide culture of security: Literacy, Skepticism, Vigilance, Secrecy, Hygiene, Federation, Diligence, Mirroring, and Deception. Each of these builds on the others, forming a layer of a security shield that professionals can use to protect themselves, their organization, and their community. These provide additional food for thought that increases the value of the book.
In No More Magic Wands, George Finney makes cybersecurity approachable and easy to understand, especially for those who are new or not well-versed in its underlying concepts. He appreciates that technology can be intimidating and developed case studies throughout the book to help the average reader appreciate how small changes over time can lead to large results to prevent, avoid, or mitigate a security breach.

The question is, how do organizations approach cybersecurity in this hyper-connected ecosystem where a single breach in the system can result in a loss amounting to billions of dollars? How do organizations design an invincible cybersecurity system?
We, at L&T Technology Services conducted detailed conversations with Global Cybersecurity Leaders across industries to capture their outlook for enterprise cybersecurity strategy and gather their insights on the best practices they employ, the risk mitigation policies they deploy and how do they find the right resources that can bolster a connected future.
The Cybersecurity (CSX) Fundamentals certificate through ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association) helps build competency in cybersecurity concepts, principles and language. During the COVID lockdown, I decided this was one of the BTI focus areas I would like to learn more about, and this article relates to my experiences preparing for and taking the certification exam.
ISACA is an international professional association with a focus on IT governance. They offer a variety of courses and certificates on IT topics and cybersecurity. While ISACA would like you to join them as a member (reduced test fees is one incentive offered), you do not need to be a member to apply for certificates.
ISACA notified me within several days with information on where I could get my certificate. I submitted my test expenses for reimbursement and, as a bonus, BTI provided a nice bonus for getting the certificate! I thought the overall experience was well worth the effort and the cybersecurity knowledge has been helpful for my work.
