Sectors discussed in Volume 1 include: military, healthcare, telecommunications, finance, education, utilities/ nuclear, government, small businesses/ nonprofits, and the international arena. This book is an excellent foundational resource for students, practitioners, and employers who not only want to develop a clearer understanding of what is required when building a cybersecurity workforce, but who need to develop top-of-mind awareness in the areas most directly impacting the future of our nation's security.
