The Art of Cyberwarfare: An Investigator's Guide to Espionage, Ransomware, and Organized Cybercrime, by Jon DiMaggio comes at a time in American History when everyone ranging from business owners to private citizens can no longer turn a blind eye to the need for cybersecurity. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses have moved to entirely remote or hybrid work and are now facing additional challenges from outside a traditional office environment. DiMaggio effectively captivates his audience to help them understand the major players in the ongoing cyberwar, the different methods attackers use, as well as how experts analyze attacks. 


Divided into two parts, the novel begins with the history and overview of cyberattacks and explores the geopolitical context in which these attacks occurred, as well as patterns discovered in attacker’s methods, and the supporting evidence analysts deemed responsible. In the second part of the book, Dimaggio details how defenses are able to track and assign future attacks, and provides the reader with techniques, tools, and the direction necessary for researching and dissecting the stages of attack campaigns.

Regardless of your expertise level, this book is an insightful read whether you’re a member of a Security Operations Center team or an individual researcher. What separates The Art of Cyberwarfare from other novels on the subject are a drive for budding young professionals to have an expert resource leading them forward.
