Staying current on the latest hacks, cyber attacks and data breaches can be challenging, but at Voxus it’s part of our daily routine. With so many clients in the cybersecurity space, we’ve come to know which publications excel at delivering the most up-to-date and in-depth coverage. From publications that are consistently the first to report big breaking stories to those that tend to focus more on the equally compelling research and industry analysis, here are four news outlets you should consider adding to your daily reading list (in no particular order).
- Bleeping Computer – Founded in 2004, Bleeping Computer established itself as both an information security and technology news publication and a computer-help website. Beyond its daily coverage around the latest threats, including a heavy dose of cyberhygiene and advice on how to deal with cyber attacks, Bleeping Computer offers a wide array of free technical support services, spyware and virus removal guides, downloads and self-education tools as well as a free community where registered members can ask questions and help others in Tech Support Forums. With a focus on and commitment to helping readers understand the basic computer/technology concepts that will allow them to communicate more intelligently about their problems and needs, Bleeping Computer is a rich resource and hub for computer users of all skill levels to learn ways to stay protected online and how to use their computer more efficiently.
Fun Fact: For its work in analyzing ransomware, issuing alerts about the latest security threats, and offering free ransomware decryptors, Bleeping Computer is the first news and support site to be added as a partner of the No More Ransom Project.
- Dark Reading – Dark Reading is a trusted online destination for security professionals that provides a deeper dive into cyber risks and vulnerabilities, as well as the tools and practices for preventing them. The publication hosts over a dozen communities, each of which is led by editors and designed to focus on a specific enterprise security challenge – from Attacks & Breaches, Threat Intelligence, Endpoint and Cloud Security to Operations, Careers & People, and more. In collaboration with the influential security researchers, technology specialists and industry analysts who comprise its impressive roster of contributing authors, Dark Reading is chock full of news and commentary to inform readers of potential threats, analyze the nature and scope of those threats, and provide a forum for discussing potential defenses and solutions.
Fun Fact: Dark Reading hosts a monthly Cartoon Caption Contest where registered users can submit their own creative quip or inside security joke for the chance to win prizes and spark smiles, for the panel of judges from Dark Reading’s editorial team and other readers alike.
- SC Media – SC Media has been around since the cybersecurity industry’s infancy, covering some of the first commercial firewalls after they hit the market in 1988. Today, SC Media is part of CyberRisk Alliance, a business intelligence company, and delivers breaking news, comprehensive analysis, and an extensive collection of independent product reviews to keep information security executives and their technical teams informed, educated and enlightened about the market. In addition to the timely, in-depth reporting offered on its website and in its two US- and UK- based digital magazines, SC Media shares expert guidance and insights on the latest cybercrimes and their implications for the business world through the resources it produces such as eBooks, and the various digital and live events it hosts annually, including the SC Media Risksec Conference and SC Awards program.
