"There's just something fascinating about cybercrime. For an industry that's rapidly (and dangerously) growing, it's important to understand the psyche of your adversaries in order to mitigate risk to your network. Blackhatonomics takes you through (a rather interesting) journey into the history of cybercrime and it's evolution up until today. From blue boxes to Stuxnet, the psychology, motivation, geolocation, and proliferation of crime packs is reported in a great, easy to read format. What's even more disturbing is the the lack of enforcement and legislation, making it a prime time to be a cyber criminal. Until governments start allocating more resources and legislation start empowering them to track and prosecute them, cyber crime will continue to evolve and become more and more enticing to criminals globally."
