Sometimes it can seem daunting trying to find useful Security Information on the Internet. There are so many sources you can choose from. Here is a list of 5 blogs I enjoy and feel everyone can learn from.
SecTor is the Security Education Conference held every fall in Toronto. “SecTor has built a reputation of bringing together experts from around the world to share their latest research and techniques. In a non-threatening and productive way, SecTor sheds light on the underground threats and mischief that threaten corporate and personal IT systems. Through identifying, discussing, dissecting and debating these digital threats, the strongest defences can be mounted.” Here you will find timely topics on issues around the world and in Canada.

Brian Krebs is a blogger and former Journalist with the Washington Post who got into Network Security “by accident.” Krebs says he began building a home network and soon discovered it had taken over by a Chinese hacking group. He thought “it would be fun to teach myself how to turn the spare computer into an oversized firewall [ah, the irony]. That is, until the Lion Worm came around and locked me out of my system. Twice. After that incident, I decided to learn as much as I could about computer and Internet security, and read most everything on the subject that I could get my hands on at the time. It’s an obsession that hasn’t let up.” With blog posts that help the average user learn how to protect themselves from online fraud, Krebs on Security is a great learning resource.
