CyberWire History

We tell you the news you need to know quickly, and point you to the important publications of the day.

The CyberWire is a free, community-driven cyber security news service based in Baltimore. Our mission is to provide concise and relevant briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, we also help individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

Our news products are created by real people—analysts, experts and writers with their ears to the ground. We use automated tools to help us along the way, but the news we share has been carefully curated the old-fashioned way—people working hard and thinking about what matters to the users of cyberspace. We operate with the idea that an informed and educated community is better-protected community, and we're committed to play our part along with the many other fine news publications throughout the world.

We have local roots and a global reach.

We are fortunate to have started our publications in Baltimore, just a stone's throw from some of the world's most important cyber security organizations from government, private industry, and academia. We're also smack in the middle of a vibrant and rapidly growing tech community with an ever-growing number of innovative cyber security startups, along with the pioneers that helped create our industry. As we look for news and insights, sometimes we just have to look around the corner.

In addition to working in a region at the cross roads of international activity in the public and private sector, we've been able to connect with experts from all over the world. It's exciting for us, because we often don't even need to ask—individuals and organizations are sharing and engaging with us on a daily basis, helping us bring you the news and continually improve our service. We're always learning, and our international friends and partners have been an invaluable part of the CyberWire.

CyberWire History

A bit of History.

The CyberWire started out small, serving as a daily business and technical intelligence briefing 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 (some good, some dubious—and the dubious always scanned with a critical eye). Since we launched in 2012, we've grown from that small cyber security intelligence daily to a global news service serving thousands of readers from more than one hundred twenty countries (and counting). We're also pleased to serve as an educational resource used by students and academic institutions around the world. Since our spin-off in April 2016 (with a good launch from our parent CyberPoint), the CyberWire has been independently published by Pratt Street Media, LLC. We’ve been able to retain and expand our connections to experts throughout the cyber security sector.
