This books multidisciplinary concept approaches cybersecurity from a fundamentally different direction.The book consists of four parts: I, Security II, Cyberspace III, Cyber Security and (NEW) IV, Coherent Defense of Large Cyber Systems. The book reviews the history of what we have been doing to establish access security analyzes the nature of cyberspace and its fundamental difference from our physical world analyzes the applicability of our legacy security measures to cyberspace determines what has been fundamentally wrong with our legacy approach to cyber security and presents a new approach to security that is effective in cyberspace.
This book, CYBESPACE and SECURITY by Victor Sheymov, does a wonderful job in discussing the differences between man-made CyberSpace and the natural world in which we live. Sheymov uses these differences to explain how securing CyberSpace is vastly different from traditional information security. The book is written so that readers without a deep computer science background can readily understand the subject, and readers with a security background will find the concepts informative and thought provoking. I know of no other author who has the real life experience that Victor Sheymov brings to this subject, and would recommend the book to everyone as an easy and entertaining reading experience.

Drawing on his decades of experience with two of the world's premier spy
agencies, Shemov offers penetrating and compelling insights into the
challenges -- and opportunities -- involved in securing cyber space. A
must-read for all -- from IT professionals and techno-nerds to policy makers
and corporate executives.

In an era when everyone is applying techniques to secure cyberspace that have repeatedly failed, it is refreshing to see an approach that goes to the core of the problem. Victor Sheymov introduces security concepts to the cyberspace arena that he has gleaned from decades of working with national intelligence agencies. The result is a work of proven principles that is a must read for cyber securityspecialists, researchers and IT professionals.
