Northport, N.Y. – Apr. 5, 2023

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.

Cybercrime Magazine is excited to bring you video reviews on some of the classics, as well as brand new titles that are just hitting the shelves.

Scott Schober, our chief security officer, takes a deep dive into each book — and provides you with his authoritative opinion.
