Ten Must-Reads For Information Security Awareness
These titles should be on every professional’s list.
An article review.
If there’s one thing you can take away from the most recent installment of our annual T7 article, it’s that the threats we face when securing IT assets are a diverse and constantly evolving lot. That’s why staying current is one of the most important things, and to assist with that TechWorm has recently published a list of ten books that are worth the read for every IT professional.
On the list are titles that look at security from both a professional and a hacker’s point of view, including Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker, by Kevin Mitnick, and The Social Engineer’s Playbook: A Practical Guide to Pretexting, By Jeremiah Talamantes. Other titles, such as Cryptography Engineering, By Niels Ferguson, Bruce Schneier, and Tadayoshi Kohno, focus on more technical aspects of security such as setting up and deploying cryptographic systems.
Regardless of your role in information security there’s bound to be something interesting to read up on in this list, and summer vacation will be here before you know it–so why not have some reading material already picked out?
