Get in the shoes of cyber attackers and witness first-hand how they accomplish their evil objective of stealing proprietary data from Company-X, a widget maker that is about to launch a revolutionary new concept of widgets.

After seeing how things can go wrong, this book will then teach you in detail how to prevent getting this far down the rabbit hole by defining and executing a custom-tailored cybersecurity program. You learn how to use tools and techniques to monitor the security posture of that newly developed cybersecurity program and. Finally, you get to hunt for malicious activity and indicators of compromise in your environment by following some fundamental Threat hunting exercises.
