My background is in tech transactional. I joined a cybersecurity SaaS startup at the end of last year and now also handle more generalist matters in addition to all things commercial-related. I have a number of books on contracts that I’ve found super helpful over the years (The Tech Contracts Handbook, A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, Sign Here, etc.). Can anyone recommend books they’ve found helpful for L&E matters, privacy matters, product matters, or marketing/advertising matters?

If you're dealing with GDPR, read the ICO's guide for organizations. It's a well-structured primer on privacy issues. If you're dealing with CCPA, google a law firm's CCPA guide and read the regs. If you need further privacy guidance, check out the DataGuidance tool by OneTrust.

The FTC has decent guidance for things like CAN-SPAM and advertising.
