In the Beginning…
Originally, the CyberWire was a daily business and technical intelligence brief for the staff of CyberPoint International. It was created to provide a summary of important cyber security developments distilled from an ever-increasing number of sources. With the aim of helping educate individuals, businesses, and the public about the importance of cyber security and the threats they face every day, the CyberWire opened to the public in September 2012.
If you like the CyberWire and think others would too, we'd appreciate it if you would spread the word!
