Cybersecurity Books

Books that arm readers in the war against cybercrime

Our editors are constantly pitched by authors on the latest and greatest cybersecurity books. But only a small percentage of them get a thumbs up from us.

With only so much time to read, we aim to filter out the best books for our readers.

A new book, Hacking the Hacker: Learn From the Experts Who Take Down Hackers by Roger Grimes, features 26 top hackers devoted to making the world a more cyber secure place.

Grimes’ book points out the essential truth everyone should be mindful of: Taken as a whole, hackers are good. To call them bad — as the media and popular culture portray them — would be a misnomer.

Another one hot off the presses from Grimes is A Data-Driven Computer Security Defense: THE Computer Security Defense You Should Be Using. Our editors haven’t reviewed it yet, but they will soon.


If a book makes it onto our list, then it’s worth buying. Our list contains 10 books which are well written, and enlighten readers on the topics of cybercrime, cyberwarfare, and cybersecurity.
