There exists academic courses at some univeristy as well. As an
example, I followed a programming school (IUT) then proceed with wath
is now a Computer Science licence degree and master degree. The second
year of the master degree usually is more specialised toward a
speciality. Some universities have IT Sec courses  (e.g. university of
Lorraine) as a choice for these specialities. It usually something
along "SSI" (Sécurité des systèmes d'informations) terminology.

The ANSSI (http://www.ssi.gouv.fr/fr/anssi/formations/les-formations-de-specialistes-en-cybersecurite-en-france.html)
site has a good list of them.

As far as books are concerned, there are many subject that might be
interesting, from cryptography to security norms. Not sure there are
some "generalist" books, but I recently started looking into the
Ethical Hacker books and they seem interesting so far.

Best of luck to him.
Best regards
