Top 6 Cyber Security Podcasts You Must Follow In 2020


Podcasts dedicated to cybersecurity have been a popular medium to keep oneself abreast with the developments in the space. Conferences, which are typically the launchpads for announcements, cannot be attended by all. Even online news may not be the preferred medium for people who do not enjoy reading. For them, a podcast can be a more easy experience to get valuable insights and unique perspectives from analysts, CIOs, and experts.

Since the popularity of these cybersecurity podcasts have gone up over the years, there are a host of options available today. In this article, we bring to you a list of top podcasts in this space:
