This being my last post for the year, I thought I\u2019d make a Top 10 list of things that really are instead of pretending I know what will be.\nThese are all just really good sources that I check religiously in my RSS feed. They are not listed in any particular order\n\nKrebsOnSecurity: Brian Krebs is a top-notch reporter with an amazing knowledge of IT security. DO NOT go to his site to find out what the latest headlines are. DO go\u00a0because he breaks news and does a superb job of in-depth reporting.\nThreatPost: Anyone would be skeptical about a news site run by a vendor. However, a couple of them have learned that providing real, solid news coverage does far more for your brand than shilling the product. ThreatPost, Kaspersky Labs\u2019 news site, is one of the best at this...\nNaked Security: \u2026 So\u00a0is Naked Security, which is run by Sophos. Both sites shy away from stories that might be critical of them, which is understandable, but they give a good solid look at the latest news.\nSalted Hash: I promise you this is not just here because it\u2019s from CIO\u2019s sister publication CSO \u2013 which I have also written for. If you doubt this just go and read Bill Brenner\u2019s blog for yourself. He doesn\u2019t give you all the news, instead he goes deep on one or two stories of the week. Read him and you will definitely learn something.\nSCMagazine: This one isn\u2019t really a blog \u2013 although there are bloggers involved \u2013 as much as a news feed of articles in the magazine and on the site. Because this is a British\u00a0publication it offers a lot of stories that don\u2019t make it into the US-centric sites.\nInfoSec Island: This is an analysis site where a lot of very smart people write about various security issues. These range from looks at breaking news to looks at the trends shaping the news. Very straight ahead and very little snark \u2013 but I hope you know where to go for that.\nSlashDot: This one doesn\u2019t need an\u00a0me explanation. Go. Read. Learn.\nThe Register: Now these folks know how to do snark and a lot of stories other people miss. My one complaint isn\u2019t about the content it\u2019s about the RSS feed. You can\u2019t just get the security news, even though that\u2019s what you are promised. You get everything and at The Register everything is a lot.\nHelp Net Security: You\u2019re going to see a lot of the same stories on all the news feeds because that\u2019s the nature of the beast. What makes a feed useful for me is quality of reporting, finding stories others miss and smart analysis. HelpNet does all of these.\nIDG News: I know I sound like a homer but IDG is really quite good at this. The link here goes to NetworkWorld\u2019s security feed but each magazine has its own news feed focusing on issues of interest to its readers. CIO\u2019s feed is here.
