Not log trust, mind you; this is just a structured dump of how I look at security-related information coming from various public sources.
- Whatever writing from someone that I actually know personally (and can vouch for)
- Blog of a security engineer (typically minimum bias)
- Analyst blogger (their bias is typically spread around)
- Security vendor blogger (their bias is clear and can be corrected for)
- Security consultant blogger (their bias is opaque, so less trust)
- Security journalist blogger
- IT journalist blogger
- IT journalist
- Clown in a neighborhood circus :-)
What are the conclusions one might draw from this?
a. Open bias makes for easier information interpretation than a hidden bias
b. I’d take “biased + knowledgeable” over “fair + ignorant” any day of the week :-)
