#FFSec: Security Pros on Twitter Who Will Show You The Way

Those who know me are aware of my fondness for Follow Friday -- a tradition on Twitter where people recognize the folks whose tweets keep them inspired and informed. In my case, the focus is on people in the InfoSec community. I have a list on Twitter that will show you 275 security pros I currently follow. You can see their bios and press the follow button on those you think might be of value.

Below is a list of Twitter handles worth following for consistently great debate and resource sharing specifically from the people of Akamai InfoSec. I've known a few of them for years and am getting acquainted with the rest. All have inspired me thus far. Follow them and you will be inspired, too.
