Incoming Newsletter

Hello Everyone!

I’ve started working on getting an easy to use newsletter system up and running! There’s still a little work to do in order to make it work exactly how I want it, but I added in a quick sign up widget in the meantime! While I won’t be sending out newsletter updates very often, it will help provide a base of users that I can reach for feedback and content updates. By enrolling, you won’t be submitting yourself to spam or anything along those lines. I’ll be sending out a newsletter once every two weeks or so.

What can you expect in a newsletter? Pretty much anything that is not really worth writing a formal write up or post. I’m attempting to keep this site as static and relevant as possible. I don’t want to start posting about news or anything that will become quickly outdated. The newsletter, however, can have some news discussion, project updates, and any other information that would ideally be as helpful as possible.

Here’s a couple examples of content you can expect:

To subscribe, simply enter in your email in the bar to the right! I don’t ask for any personal information, just your email.

Hopefully, this will grow into something worthwhile. As always if there’s anything you would like to see in the email updates or on the site in general, send me an email! I started this blog primarily to help out a couple friends who were either new to the security industry or wanted to know how to get into it. I try to be as helpful as possible! I’m always up for new ideas and suggestions.

Staying Current with Cyber Security News

You’ll be hard pressed to find a single day where there is nothing noteworthy in cyber security news. For some, news exposure occurs only when watching a standard cable news channel or hearing stories from coworkers, friends, and family. If you are in the professional security world (or are aspiring to be one), you’ll need to get another news source to stay current, to keep your thumb on the pulse on all that is happening in the security world.

My preferred method is using an RSS feed to keep up with all the articles and website updates I follow. My RSS feed is comprised solely of cyber security related sites such as personal blogs, vendor blogs, and official notification sites, i.e. US-CERT.  Currently, I have 45 sites on my feed.  I read articles days or even weeks before my coworkers or infosec friends thanks to my feed. RSS feeds are not my only source of information, however, I find it most helpful out of all the various methods of obtaining news.

I’ve written a quick, easy guide on how to get started and provided my file of news sources to import. The end result is a fully customized news feed using Feedly on your browser or on your phone. Take a look and feel free to provide feedback! RSS-Tutorial
