For security news, I always visit Brian Krebs’ blog:
https://krebsonsecurity.com/
He has deeper dives on a lot of security breaches than you’ll get from all the other news articles that get rushed out the door.

Also, even though it’s half a joke account, the Swift on Security twitter account has lots of good security news in between the jokes:

Thanks, Nic!

The Register, Written with a sense of British humour and a place to go for all IT news. Other places will visit as needed as and when but most days scan the email digest I get across all IT news for any juicy bits that interest me.

Thanks, @trilly!

I try to keep an eye on a lot of sites, but my favorites are ThreatPost, KrebsOnSecurity, and DarkReading. The CyberWire daily email is also super useful!

I’m a big fan of The Register too, especially their BOFH series:
