Praise for Cybersecurity for Small Networks: A Guide for the Reasonably Paranoid

“An excellent crash course for someone like me with a technical background but little security experience. I've always wanted to beef up my home server and network security but didn't know where to start . . . This book has given me actionable steps I can take today, this week, this month, and beyond. And it gives me the confidence that I'm following reasonable best practices for an actual small network.”
