Top 5 #CyberSecurity Accounts to Follow on Twitter

Maybe the most useful tool to stay up to date with everything that has to do with the Cyber Security and IT world is Twitter. As opposed to reading a magazine or following the news which can only cover a limited amount of information- Twitter is a constant stream of information as well as professional opinions. By simply searching #CyberSecurity on Twitter you will have access to everything that is happening in the field at a given point in time.

What’s even better is that some of the brightest Security minds have their own Twitter pages. As a result, anyone can dig deep into what Cyber Security influencers are up to, what their opinions are, and what are the pressing issues in the Information Security world.
