Ohio State’s Institute for Cybersecurity and Digital Trust (ICDT), is the newest home for the international Cybersecurity Canon, a curated collection of must-read books for the cybersecurity community. The collection is revered by professionals in academia, government and military and currently includes over 90 reviewed books. Members of the canon identify lists of must-read fiction and nonfiction books for cybersecurity professionals or those looking to get a foothold into the security industry. Canon-worthy books include those that focus on the core aspects of information security, are forward thinking, original and able to remain relevant for years to come.
The ICDT, launched on Jan. 17 by the Office of Research is co-led by Hesham El Gamal, professor and chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Helen Patton, Ohio State’s chief information security officer. The goal of ICDT is to organize the university’s collective data security assets and team up with partners statewide to advance the industry.
