Trusted Sources for Threat Intelligence and Cybersecurity Information

Just how in the heck does a cybersecurity professional stay on top of the rapidly evolving threat landscape, the ever changing attacks and exploits, and new security solutions? I can assure you it involves a lot of reading.

Last month the Twin Cities chapter of (ISC)2 held a meeting on the topic of trusted sources for threat intelligence.  It seemed like a great topic idea, so I decided to share my list with my readers.  This list is not comprehensive, but one story leads to another, and this is how I discovered all these sites.  Most of these sites allow you to sign up and they provide the content via email newsletter, which is my preference.  This also is where I do a lot of my research for articles I post on the blog.  Weekend Update, my Saturday post, contains a loosely curated selection of articles from these sources that I felt are worth a look.

My threat intelligence sources are listed below:

Here are some additional sites from peers of mine in the Twin Cities (ISC)2 Chapter.

It told you it’s a lot of reading!  My basic strategy is to scan the headlines for topics that interest me or I need know about, and then dig in.  There is just too much going on to keep up with everything, but you can use these sites as a start, be a little choosy, and stay current with what you need to know for your organization or your role.
