Staying Current in Cybersecurity

In the cybersecurity field, staying informed about the latest developments, and threats is crucial. In this post, I’ll write about some methods which I use.

RSS Readers

RSS readers like Inoreader and Feedly are useful tools for viewing content from various sources in one platform.

Through your preferred RSS reader, subscribe to industry blogs, cybersecurity news sites, and security researchers. Many in the field maintain personal blogs or contribute to industry platforms.

I dedicate morning time to scroll through recent news from various sources while sipping sparkling water.

Follow Researchers and Organizations

Twitter is a valuable source of real time information. I follow security researchers and organizations to keep up with the latest trends. Creating a private list on Twitter helps me monitor relevant accounts, so I visit the tab occasionally to stay informed.

I utilize Twitter for various purposes, from following security researchers to staying informed about geopolitical developments.

On YouTube I enjoy watching IppSec and Mental Outlaw, both channels are worth checking out. There are also podcasts, but with all due respect, they’re all garbage.

Participate in Forums and Communities

Engaging with cybersecurity communities through platforms like Discord, Twitter, and forums provide a space for chatting, learning, and hearing about experiences from the community.

Personally, I like Discord, and there are countless communities to join. Whether you’re into learning with TryHackMe, seeking certifications with OffSec, or bug hunting with HackerOne.
