Trusted Sources for Threat Intelligence and Cybersecurity Information
Notes from ISC2-TC November 2019 Meeting
Last month the Twin Cities chapter of (ISC)2 held a meeting on the topic of trusted sources for threat intelligence. We have compiled a list of resources suggested in the meeting and published it here. This list is not comprehensive. Most of these sites allow you to sign up and they provide the content via email.
Special shout out and thanks to Bob Weiss for the majority of the links provided in this document. Also to Sulaiman Muhammad for helping prepare for this meeting.
