As is the case with security challenges and technologies, the Twittersphere is full of cybersecurity experts sharing their thoughts, research and news on a wide range of topics: vulnerabilities, viruses, malware, application security, DevOps, data breaches, privacy, bug bounties, responsible disclosure, threat intelligence, privacy and more.

This Top 10 of Cybersecurity Twitter profiles was selected based on their inclusion in many, many lists over the past few years. The more lists they were on, the higher up the stack they were placed. Once on the list, they were ranked by number of Twitter followers.

In this round-up, we find the following:

  • 9 people, 1 "personality"
  • 8 men, 1 woman, 1 unspecified
  • 7 reference their personal blogs, 3 reference company blogs

Most, if not all of the “people” on this list are regular public speakers as well - so chances are, you've seen them somewhere, even if in an online video.

Collectively, they have tweeted more than 282,572 times and reach three quarters of a million followers. We've captured their most popular tweets in this collection.

Lawrence,

I think that reply was uncalled for.  Some people ARE better at Twitter and FB than others.  I'm looking as well and have used twitter and FB for quite a while.  What I did was type in all 11 "@..." and clik follow.  If there is an easier way, I'd be game to know also.  Please be a mentor, not a venter.

Re: It's unbelievable but true
Evidently you do not possess the skills needed to follow someone on Twitter or you require spoonfeeding. After 15 seconds of work, I am able to follow each of the profile persons.
