WASHINGTON, Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scoop News Group (SNG) announces the launch of their CyberScoop website, the newest go-to destination for cutting edge cybersecurity news. Earlier this year, the media company launched a digital newsletter featuring articles and events related to protecting electronic data. With an initial subscriber base of 200,000 government IT and tech industry executives, CyberScoop will engage top security leaders through news, newsletters, TV, radio and events.
Cybersecurity has increasingly become the No. 1 priority among IT leaders in federal, state and local governments; educational institutions; and the private sector. CyberScoop is the response to the rise of cyber-related infringements, issues and discussions.
"As the leading tech media company in Washington, D.C., we have spent the past eight years building community with top security leaders from the government and tech industry. We are uniquely positioned to bring the brightest people together and wrap our arms around an issue that impacts everyone," says Goldy Kamali, Founder and CEO of Scoop News Group. "From the White House to Silicon Valley, we will engage and collaborate with security leaders on the latest technology to the policies that shape our digital world. CyberScoop will take a growing, complex landscape and make sense of it on one platform."
Since launching the newsletter in July, SNG's CyberScoop team — comprised of managing editor Greg Otto, cybersecurity journalism veteran Shaun Waterman and reporter Chris Bing — has been at the forefront of some of the biggest stories in cybersecurity. The team has spent the past three months covering the Democratic National Committee hacks, the massive data breach at Yahoo, and the public leak of NSA-linked exploits.
"The past three months have shown just how vital an outlet like CyberScoop can be," said Greg Otto. "Everything around cybersecurity is growing -- the attack surfaces, the budgets, the need for a skilled workforce and the urgency to protect critical infrastructure. We will continue to focus on how both the public and private sectors are improving their efforts while also bringing our audience the best of cybersecurity's cutting edge."
In addition to Otto's team, CyberScoop will rely on a host of influencers from the cybersecurity community to weigh in on the topics most pressing to those responsible for protecting the Internet. For their initial launch, renowned technologist and chief scientist at White Ops Security, Dan Kaminsky, authored a look at why the U.S. needs an organization similar to the National Institutes of Health for cybersecurity.
"CyberScoop is connecting people across policy and technology lines and giving working security engineers a direct line to the Beltway," Kaminsky said.
