If a high school student or newbie is interested in cybersecurity, then what are the best books for them to read?

We assigned Connor Morgan, a researcher at Cybercrime Magazine, to produce a list that whets the appetite of young and old minds alike.

Some of the books on our list provide educational material and tutorials on various cyber topics. Others are history lessons in cybercrime and cybersecurity. And then there are entertaining stories for anyone with a knack for cat and mouse play.


There’s something for everyone who’s interested in cybersecurity on this list.

Knowledge is power in the war against cybercrime. If you read one or some of these books and decide cybersecurity isn’t the right field for you, then at least you’ll be able to protect yourself against the rising tide of digital criminals.
