Where do you go to stay in the know?

As we all know, with the increasing complexity in cybersecurity it's important for cyber and IT professionals to keep current on cybersecurity trends and threats. 

 

What news sources, websites, blogs, podcasts, or online forums do you go to for your cyber news?

Re: Where do you go to stay in the know?

I have utilized so many blogs and sites for research and updates over the years.  Below are just a few that I can think of as of late.  I hope the links help someone.

Re: Where do you go to stay in the know?

Here is another post where someone asked specifically about podcasts. Page 2 has the list compiled by early entries and a few were added after:

I also visit the Internet Storm Center (ISC) (the OTHER ISC, LOL!) by SANS daily.

I also visit Dark Reading and several websites for CISO's.

I spend a few minutes each morning reviewing some common, popular "news" sites, like FoxNews, MSN, Yahoo, CNN, etc., which include a few that don't fit my personal views, so I can be aware of what cybersecurity stories are circulating that my executives or other employees may read and ask me about.

It helps me monitor "trends" that may or may not be true trends.

 

I also watch webinars and read ISC2's magazine too.

In addition to the webcasts and magazines from ISC2 & ISACA, and some of other sources already mentioned here, I also follow Alien Vault on LinkedIn.

 

For incident & vulnerability management at the organization I'm with, priority is given to alerts from government regulatory authorities--- while these are specific to our location, they sometimes provide information that I don't get from other sources.

 

Last but not least is WhatsApp groups related to IT Security. (Yes, there is a price: I have to verify the credibility of what I see)
