The Art of Cyber Security; 100 Cyber Security Quotations


Abstract and Figures

In these years, one of the challenges I faced in compiling reports, presentations, and lectures was the lack of aphorism and quotes in cybersecurity. Quotes and meaningful but straightforward lessons could help the narrator to be concise but convey the meaning thoroughly. Generally, lessons use parables and examples a lot. Once Albert Einstein said: “Example isn’t another way to teach, it is the only way to teach.” Parables and examples even help to convey the most complex scientific issues in a language that is understandable to the public. How beautiful Dr. Ali Shariati says: “Saying other people’s ideas is not contemplating; the best contemplating is a moment to think independently.” Therefore, while I decided to collect a few existing sentences from the leaders and famous professionals in the field of information security, to fill this void, I also started to think and turn this thinking to parables or concise sentences. After over seven years that I’m acquiring knowledge and experience in Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) with notable professors like- Dr. Mehdi Shajari, Dr. Mehran S. Fallah, Dr. Babak Sadeghiyan, Dr. Hamid Reza Shahriari, Dr. Siavash Khorsandi and Dr. Ahmad Afshar-What I wrote in this book is no offense to them, but instead, it means appreciation to these nobles and continuing the path of professors and professionals in this field as a cybersecurity researcher. I have adapted some of the sentences in this book by thinking about nature and modeling on living things and their natural mechanisms; The pristine nature that is part of the vast world of creation and I believe we can look at it from different angles. This attitude can come from the perspective of the physicist, chemist, astronomer, biologist, poet, philosopher, mathematician, and any experts in any field, including information security. In this book, I have tried to look at these phenomena from a different perspective as a researcher in the field of cybersecurity. This attitude cannot only provide impressive templates for designing and implementing security solutions, but it also has the power to depict nature’s wonders from other angles. This book is provided in nine chapters. In each chapter, there are quotes or parables related to the title of the chapters mentioned above. Before anything, I accept all its imperfections and shortcomings in advance, and your thoughtful criticism and suggestions are welcomed with open arms. To gratify my beloved homeland, I want to end this with a few last words: “One of the honors of our dearly loved country is the high level of defensive security in this area; I hope this blessing will preserve our nation’s eternal peace and of course, with the effort of each of us, we can also make a high level of cybersecurity another honor of our country.” The Cost of Book and Copyright Permission to make digital or hard copies of all part of «The Art of CyberSecurity» book is granted, provided that copies are not made or distributed for profit or commercial advantage and that copies bear this notice and the full citation on the book and author. 100% of the sale of this ebook is for donations to reputable charities around the world, so please pay at least 10$ to any of the legitimate charities you know or Raad Charity Rehabilitation Goodwill Complex we offer.
