Books are one of the best ways to learn about a complicated subject, such as cybersecurity. Yes, it might take a long time to read one carefully and absorb all the information in it, but once you have, you’ll be geared out with a tonne of insight. And better still, you can always come back later to re-read a chapter or two and freshen up your knowledge.

Here are 6 books to read to learn about cyber security as recommended by leading industry experts in the field.

#2 Bullseye Breach

Bullseye Breach: Anatomy of an Electronic Break-In is an educational book, disguised as a novel about what happens when Russian mobsters steal 40 million customer credit card numbers from fictional retailer, Bullseye Stores, over the Internet. It should be at the top of everyone's list of books to learn about cyber security.

#6 Red Team Field Manual + Blue Team Field Manual

As a former DoD Cyptologist, I recommend these books to everyone I know in IT. They are reference books of essential cyber security functions such as Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. They're very short reads loaded with examples down to the code level.
