With the work we do with the US Cyber Challenge, we’re constantly asked about resources that might aid someone in their knowledge working towards a Cyber Security Career. To that end, we’ve assembled the following set of resources that other’s may found useful. This is a list we most commonly give out when recruiting at Career Fairs and anywhere else where someone is specifically interested in Application Security.
If you’re excited about Cyber Security, and find yourself working through a good part of this; please also take a look at our careers page. We’re constantly looking for good talent, and we believe strongly in hiring entry-level people and helping train them in the field.
Items in bold and italics are those resources we heavily recommend, and should be what you start with.
