Have you ever wanted to publish a book? We have Apress coming to talk to us about the process of getting a technical book published!

Co-hosted with:

BlackGirlsHack (BGH), Breaking Barriers Women in Cybersecurity (BBWIC), Women in Security and Privacy (WISP), Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu (WSC)

About Apress:

Apress (an imprint of Springer Nature) is a technical publisher devoted to meeting the needs of IT professionals, software developers, and programmers, with more than 4,500 books in print and electronic formats. Our authors are programmers, developers, experts, and thought-leaders in their disciplines.

We are a full-service publisher—we arrange peer review, development editing, copyediting, typesetting, indexing, cover design, and all that’s needed to produce a polished product.

Our books get maximized distribution worldwide—in print and electronic formats and in all file formats for Kindle, Nook, and in the iBookstore as well as PDF. All books are available from popular online subscription services such as Springerlink, Books 24×7, and Safari/O’Reilly Books Online.

Other benefits of publishing with Apress:

Authors retain copyright credit inside the book. This is a benefit few other publishers allow.
Apress provides 5 copies of your book for personal use, and additional copies of your book to support marketing efforts, conference presentations, and to qualified reviewers.
Authors can buy additional copies of their books at 40% off cover price or bulk discounts on other titles we publish. Many authors involved in training, or who use their book to promote their consulting business, take advantage of this.
Every eBook is available in full color and is fully hyperlinked with searchable e-pub files, readable on any device. And with print-on-demand, our titles never go out of print.

Here is our Book Proposal Form—this asks the specific questions we need to properly evaluate any new project. I have also included a completed “Build Your Own Bicycle” proposal… this is a great resource that explains the rationale for each part. Even though it’s on a different subject than our typical tech books, it’s a great way to help formulate a proposal.

We Are In This Together — Tactics For Improving Representational Parity In Information Security
While many of us agree that DEI initiatives are essential to address the cyber skills gap, the how is often less clear. In this webcast, hear success stories from three information security leaders about how they improved parity for those traditionally underrepresented in the industry. We will address all levels of security practitioners. Leaders and mentors will learn some of the strategies and tactics you can bring back to your organization. Those early in their careers better understand how security organizations operate and what they look for when fostering talent.
