Welcome to the Bellevue University guide for Cybersecurity.  This guide provides a good starting point for general research in this area.  The variety of resources will give the cybersecurity student a sampling of information on computer security, computer crimes, data protection and laws concerning cybersecurity. Resources include print and electronic books, subscription databases, and websites.   Each print book title links directly to the library online catalog, while each e-book title links directly to the full text of the book.  Database recommendations link directly to the specific database.  Recommended websites cover various aspects of the topic.
