Cybersecurity Performance Career Coaching

My Recommended Book List

Continuous education is the key to staying current in cybersecurity, especially as the field is every growing and evolving.

There are new technologies being developed everyday, and while it might be a challenge to learn about everything, you should at least on a regular basis. Learn about a new cybersecurity domain, while continuing the education of your preferred cybersecurity domain. This will allow you to continually grow in the space.

Below is a collections of books that I have accumulated over the past couple years, they include of collection of books that predate the computers involving spies, intelligence gathering and more. These have provided me a great background for cybersecurity. I have included sections that focus on IT, DevOps, Security & Cyber, History & Background of Spying, Intelligence, Cyberwar, etc., and Personal Growth & Professional Development.

It was an remarkable adventure to help author this career development book and the feedback from the community amazing. Check it out yourself or share with others:
