Sometimes it’s nice to absorb information in a more visual way rather than through text. To help we’ve gathered up the top 5 Infosec Youtube channels, give them a peek.
1) Javvad Malik
Javvad Malik isn’t your average security professional. With almost 2,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel, Javvad puts an extremely funny and engaging twist on security. His most recent video is a week-long trip to DEFCON, BlackHat and BsidesLV condensed into 4:06 minutes. Other prominent videos include benefits of being a CISSP and why you should encrypt your password.
2) John McAfee
Founder of McAfee, John McAfee was the first developer of a commercial anti-virus program and is well known for his eccentric personality. With only 12 videos on his YouTube channel and over 12,000 subscribers it could be difficult to understand what all the fuss is about. His video, ‘How To Uninstall McAfee Antivirus’ has had 4,127,713 hits and instead of me trying to explain, just go and watch it.
As I’m sure you are aware, Tripwire are a leading global provider of IT security and compliance solutions for enterprises, government agencies and service providers. They upload videos frequently that are often interesting, informative and pretty funny too. Have a look at ‘Hey…What’s Your Password’ to see what their YouTube Channel is about.
