Book Review: Social Engineer by Ian Sutherland - Fiction
Sutherland portrays the white hat computer hacker illustrating how computer systems of corporations are vulnerable. He explains how these computer hackers unscrupulously and with untoward tactics gain access to the corporation’s system and widely open the system to steal the corporation’s secrets. The main character, Brody Taylor, demonstrates how unbelievably simple it is to access the corporation’s computer system.
There is deceit, love, suspense and most important a genuine means of earning a living on the part of the white hat computer hacker who ultimately comes across as a performer. Throughout the novella there are significant details that uncovers the role of the white hat computer hacker.
A cautionary tale of warning to anyone who is a regular user of smart devices and computer technology.
