Security Experts on Twitter: Who should I follow?

 Twitter is a great place to get to know people you most likely would have never gotten to meet in person. I use twitter to get updated on computer security news from computer security experts I would have most likely never get to meet in person. So I have decided to create a list of computer security experts I think you may want to follow and provide some information on who they are. So here is the list I think you will enjoy


 StopMalvertsin does research of current malware trends and researches malware that is being spread through advertising networks. StopMalvertisin is a great twitter feed to follow if you want to see a wide variety of computer security related news.

 Dave Marcus:

  Dave is director of security research over at McAfee labs. You will see a lot of tweets on a wide range of topics coming from his twitter account.

 Microsoft Safer Online team

 This Microsoft Team is dedicated to tweeting out the latest internet privacy news for you to follow. This twitter account provides great information on that topic and I really enjoy reading what news they tweet.
