We’ve been busy at Metacurity upgrading our search engine, cleaning out our databases and putting into place more automated mechanisms to provide our readers with insight into cybersecurity news sources, journalists and top trending topics.
One area that we’ve tackled is our ability to track the publications and journalists who capture the lead slots in Metacurity’s entries. Going forward, we will have the ability to generate more accurate tables that list the top infosec publications and journalists.,
Our rankings are based on the frequency of how often each publication or journalist “leads” the news on a particular cybersecurity development. This frequency calculation does not necessarily correlate with which publication or journalist broke the news or produced the highest quality article.
Some of the best publications and journalists don’t rate high in our rankings because their reports take time to produce and aren’t as frequent. Some of the publications and journalists who break news stories don’t always provide the most insightful pieces on the story. And sometimes Metacurity isn’t as frequently updated as it should be, an issue we hope to address given your support over the coming year.
Still, our top sources tables should be useful to help cybersecurity professionals, public relations representatives, and anyone else interested in following cybersecurity news find the right resources to follow via feeds, twitter and Metacurity’s own website.
We have posted our first annual top sources lists on Metacurity for all visitors to the website to see. Check out below the top publication sources and journalists cited in the lead entries for 2018.
But as a special bonus to Metacurity’s Patrons, we are providing them with a first look at our Q1 2019 rankings before we post them here. Those rankings differ quite a bit from the overall 2018 rankings, delivering insight into which journalists and publications rose to the top during the first three months of the year.
To gain access to these latest rankings, please become one of our Patrons.
