As a security researcher that deals with this same material on a daily basis I have to say this is a great book to own. The material is valid and up to date. The authors are active members of the infosec community and as such bring years of knowledge and experience to share with the readers. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is actively in this field as well as any prospecting students looking to jump into security field.

Reverse Deception earns my highest rating. As a technically challenged researcher, Reverse Deception provides multiple levels of adaptive understanding even I can enjoy. Surprisingly witty, the authors parse extremely complex topics into byte-size consumable product for easy consumption. The authors built in enough scenarios and vignettes to indicate they have real-world experiences in cyber and counter-espionage. I especially appreciate how Reverse Deception dissects Operation Aurora as an example of how even the best can be fooled. I highly recommend Reverse Deception as mandatory reading for intelligence professionals--techie or not.

As a curious geek, I have only begun reading this; so far, I cannot recommend it highly enough. From the perspective of a layperson wishing to be better educated about cyber threats, and exploitation of all of the sensitive information that whizzes around the world on a daily basis, this book is a must-read. Very seldom will one come across material that really gets behind the scenes of Organized Cyber Threats, and gives the reader a realistic, and practical insider look at countering and beating the "bad guy" at their own game.

Format: Paperback
Advanced persistent threat (APT) is one of the most common information security terms used today and it is an undeniably real and dangerous menace.

Wikipedia notes that APT's usually refer to a group, such as a foreign government, with both the capability and the intent to persistently and effectively target a specific entity. The term is commonly used to refer to cyber threats, in particular that of Internet-enabled espionage using a variety of intelligence gathering techniques to access sensitive information, but applies equally to other threats such as that of traditional espionage or attack.

Every organization of size and scope is a target, and many of the world's largest firms and governments have been victims. In Reverse Deception: Organized Cyber Threat Counter-Exploitation, Dr. Max Kilger and his co-authors provide an effective counterintelligence approach in which to deal with APT. The good news is that the authors provide an effective framework. The bad news is that creating an effective defense is not an easy undertaking.

When it comes to APT, the de facto perpetrator is China. The book shows how to pursue and hopefully prosecute the perpetrator. But that begs the questions, how many firms can realistically defend themselves against an adversary like China, RBN or nation state?

In the introduction, the authors note that deception is about behavior, both induced in the adversary and undertaken by the deceiver to exploit it. To deceive, the authors write, it is not sufficient to induce belief in the adversary; it is necessary also to prepare and execute the exploitation of resultant behavior. Once again, preparation and execution against a nation state is not a small endeavor.

Still reading, very poorly edited and the introduction re occurs about 4 or 5 times. The content so far is very good, even great but seems to contain some paragraphs that are nothing but word count filler. Still I find the content driving me to give it 4 stars and as I close in on the end of the book I still give it 4 stars.

One note to the author/s would be: Frozen lakes are thickest in the middle and thinner towards the shores, might seem counter intuitive but its true.

This book was well worth the purchase and is a solid, solid read. As I poured through the pages I found this book to be informative, instructional, and very relevant to the issues of cyber exploitation and counter-deception techniques used to mitigate and manage the inevitability of an attack. I hope these guys kick out another read soon. I'll be one of the first on the list to purchase!
