The Cybersecurity Canon Award Winners: Impactful Books on Cybersecurity

by Katherine Bodendorfer

WhiteHawk is pleased to spread the word about all 2017 and 2018 Cybersecurity Canon award winners. The Cybersecurity Canon committee which is sponsored by Palo Alto Networks, has put together a list of informative books for all cybersecurity professionals and practitioners. The objective of the Canon reading list is to “identify a list of must-read books for all cybersecurity practitioners—be they from industry, government or academia— [where if the books] are not read, [it] will make the practitioner incomplete. Check this list out today!
