Keeping Up With The Joneses

We live in a dynamic, evolving world. And it is therefore important that we keep abreast with the latest trends in our respective fields. This is a surefire way of getting ahead of the rest of pack.

With that said I found the following resources to be quite helpful with achieving the above mentioned objective for us infosec types.

Social Networking Sites
Not only are these sites fun to hack and useful in the reconnaissance phase of a pentest. They also represent one of the best ways to network in the infosec field. Twitter for example is proving to be a great tool for this. Jhaddix from SecurityAegis has a very good write up over at on leveraging its power in this regard. I encourage you to read it. Good stuff gets posted on twitter long before it hits mainstream. Case in point is the release of RSnakes new tool Slowloris.

RSS Feeds
Another way to keep up is via RSS feeds. Paul Asadorian from the famed PaulDotCom has an extensive list to get you started. All you need to do is download the feeds and import them into your RSS news reader. So check that out also.

Well you can start off by always reading this blog to get your day started. Ok let's get back to reality. Bloggers is a good place to start. With regards to webcasts Sans has some very good ones. Check this out to whet your appetite.

There is a lot more that can be said on this topic. I am only scratching the surface here. Mubix has a much better list here.

These are just some of the resources that I have found useful.So check them out and feel free to share your own.
