    Must read material for anyone aspiring to a career in cybersecurity/DFIR

    This book was so much more than I thought it was going to be! It is a how-to guide for maximizing forensic activity in each of the 7 OSI layers. Not a book you can race through, the authors of each section walk the reader through the different tools and steps to take to investigate activity in each layer. I’ll be reading it again and keeping it at my desk for quick reference.

    Nice beginner friendly content…

    The theme of the book is amazing and content is nice. Sometimes it’s digging a little deep into the specifics, but its good regarding Digital forensics and Network related stuff.
