Top cyber security websites: Part 1 – Darkreading.com

Profile

Founded in 2006, the US-based website Darkreading.com is a comprehensive news site dedicated to the IT security sector, featuring journalistic material alongside its sponsored content. A part of the digital magazine service Information Week, which is owned by CMP Media, Darkreading.com is a distillation of the main technology news that affects cyber security.

Content

Information Week has a circulation of over 220,000 users and Darkreading.com itself has over 94,000 followers on Twitter, 5,000 likes on Facebook and 2,500 members on LinkedIn. Informing such a large online community base, the website covers ten key areas of the sector:

• Attacks and breaches
• Vulnerabilities and threats
• Mobile security
• Endpoint security and privacy
• Security management and analytics
• Application security
• Cloud security
• Data leaks and insider threats
• Network and perimeter security
• Risk management and compliance

Articles and content is delivered in these key areas by researchers, industry experts and specialists, who supply material to an editorial team tasked with responsibility for each of these fields.

Features

The site offers a basic, free online membership, which provides access to its newsletters and archived material. However, for some extra information, including company details and specific areas of interest, you can also access a wealth of free reports, whitepapers and downloads. Membership allows access to webinars, videos and radio services.

The ‘Bug Report’, which provides alerts on threats and risks as they happen, is also a useful feature.

Review

There is no doubting why Darkreading.com is one of the largest and most popular sources of news within the cyber security sector. The material is wide ranging, well researched and informative. The site covers a comprehensive range of issues that affect cyber security professionals and the additional material you can access will be of use to many users. The website is easy to navigate and has a relatively uncluttered feel, without too many pop-ups or advertising windows.
