The Myths of Security: What the Computer Security Industry Doesn't Want You to Know
John Viega recently published a new book: The Myths of Security: What the Computer Security Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know.
It’s a great read, especially if you are new to or are interested in the security industry as a whole. However, even if you are a long term security veteran, you will find it enjoyable.
The book is a series of essays addressing a range of topics from “The Cloud” to the state of the AV industry and everything in between. The essays aren’t long, but they are very thorough. This makes it easy to pick up the book become engaged and learn something quickly.
My only complaint is that the essays around privacy and anonymity. They weren’t nearly as deep as I was either hoping nor on par with the rest of the book. Despite this, the book is excellent and well worth reading. I highly encourage you to pick up a copy.
