This is truly big news.
Ross Anderson has announced he is working on a third edition of his book Security Engineering. Even better, he is putting draft chapters online for us to read and comment!
Here is what Dr. Anderson said, a comment to Bruce Schneier's blog article on visa denials for cryptographers.

It was an award for my book on security engineering, at which I had to announce by video rather than in person that there will be a third edition.
The chapters will come online as I write them for review and comment.
Here are the first two, including a chapter on threat actors that summarises not just what we know about cybercrime, but what we learned from Ed Snowden – and a chapter on the implications for the privacy landscape
I thought it curious that almost six years after the disclosures nobody had written a concise summary of what we learned.
Every infosec/cybersec professional and serious student should have both of those links bookmarked, and read Dr. Anderson's chapters regularly!
