Dark Reading: Connecting The Information Security Community

Long one of the most widely-read cyber security news sites on the Web, Dark Reading is now the most trusted online community for security professionals like you. Our community members include thought-leading security researchers, CISOs, and technology specialists, along with thousands of other security professionals. We want you to join us.

This is where enterprise security staffers and decision-makers come to learn about new cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and technology trends. It's where they discuss potential defenses against the latest attacks, and key technologies and practices that may help protect their most sensitive data in the future. It's where they come to engage with one another and with Dark Reading editors to embrace new (and big) ideas, find answers to their IT security questions and solve their most pressing problems.

Dark Reading.com encompasses 13 communities, each of which drills deeper into the enterprise security challenge: Analytics, Attacks & Breaches, Application Security, Careers and People, Cloud Security, Endpoint,  IoT, Mobile, Operations, Perimeter, Risk, Threat Intelligence, and Vulnerabilities and Threats. Each community is led by editors and subject matter experts who collaborate with security researchers, technology specialists, industry analysts and other Dark Reading members to provide timely, accurate and informative articles that lead to spirited discussions.

Our goal is to challenge community members to think about security by providing strong, even unconventional points of view, backed by hard-nosed reporting, hands-on experience and the professional knowledge that comes only with years of work in the information security industry.

We want you to be part of this community. Please join us on live chats, story discussions, polls, radio shows, reader-generated discussion boards, newsletters and other interactive features -- all for free. We'll also invite you to live events where we can continue these conversations face-to-face.

Simply register here – it's free – to join the conversation and fully benefit from all the features on this site. If you're interested in participating further, contact our editors – we're always on the lookout for industry thought leaders who'd like to offer their perspectives on IT security and its role in business.
