Cybersecurity News: The 15 Best Places To Get Great Info
Melissa Stevens | March 22, 2016
Reading thetop cybersecurity blogs is, of course, one of the best ways to stay up on the latest news in the security industry. But while these niche blogs do often address news stories, most often they’re doing so while also interjecting their own opinions. And sometimes you just need the straight, unbiased facts.
If you bookmark the pages listed below, you’ll stay on top of those facts as well as hard-hitting stories from a variety of perspectives, from cybersecurity policy, to how hacks happen, to how vulnerabilities actually work. You may read about some of the same stories from each of these sources, but you can count on each story being written from a unique perspective. And because each of these sources are updated nearly every day, you’ll always have fresh content available.
CNBC has an obvious focus on the business implications behind recent cybersecurity breaches and top security stories. If you’re interested in seeing how cybersecurity is impacting companies from a financial perspective, CNBC is the first place to look.
Like ArsTechnica, eWeek’s dedicated security section is more niche and focuses on specific security implications. The site typically publishes several articles per day, which is helpful if you’re looking for near-constant updates in the security world.
SC Magazine’s tagline is “For Security Professionals,” making it an obvious choice for this list. The magazine publishes great deal of stories about recent breaches and the implications therein, as well as new vulnerabilities.
The latest and greatest in technology is covered in TechCrunch. These articles are typically more opinion-based by nature—but it’s certainly worth following to see any news of cybersecurity technologies emerging.
The Wall Street Journal’s CIO section is updated every morning with articles ranging from cloud-based technology, to ecommerce, to innovation. The Security and Privacy section should be one of your first stops on a weekday for updated cybersecurity news.
We love ZDNet’s tagline under its security section: “Let's face it. Software has holes. And hackers love to exploit them. New vulnerabilities appear almost daily. If you have software - we all do - you need to keep tabs on the latest vulnerabilities.” The site does a great job of covering the latest news—for example, its recent articles aboutApple and the FBI.
Keep in mind...
It’s important to remember that these news sources are extremely different from one another. When you read a story from the Washington Post, for example, it’ll be from a “large media” perspective, which means the story will likely be explained in broader terms. By keeping tabs on those sources as well as more niche cybersecurity news sources like eWeek, for example, you’re able to get a more comprehensive view of how the security industry is being represented and what’s happening that is newsworthy.
