News Sources for Black Hat, BSidesLV and DEF CON

It used to be that I went to conferences to report news. 

Now, as a member of Akamai's InfoSec department, my role is different. I still write about a lot of topics, especially those pertaining to Akamai's security procedures and beliefs. But for the most part, now I'm on the other side, looking for good news sources to keep track of what's happening.

Fortunately, I didn't have to look far...

One source is Dark Reading, which has a special page devoted to the conference, including radio broadcasts, blog posts and raw news stories.

There's also my former employer, CSOonline, which is already full of great coverage. Pay special attention to Steve Ragan's Salted Hash blog.

Threatpost.com is a good resource for articles on the talks as they happen. One particularly interesting item is Dennis Fisher's article about innovation in the wake of the Snowden leaks.

Paul Roberts' Security Ledger is another great resource, particularly this article on security luminary and Black Hat keynote speaker Dan Geer.

I'll update this post as I come across more.
