Where (and how) can a web developer learn more about cyber security?

The world is getting scary.

In the last few years I've been getting increasingly uneasy about the internet. Things like…

  • Data Breaches
  • Identity Theft
  • Scams
  • Surveilance capitalism
  • Nations destroying other nations' digital infrastructure
  • Oppressive regimes tracking dissidents

When these things occur, you can bet it's the most vulnerable people in society who are hardest hit.

Several people close to me have been hacked — one even had her entire savings stolen (she is fine now).

Where can we learn to protect ourselves, the people around us, and the people who rely on our products?

…and how can we get really deep into cyber security — with the goal of building tools to help people?

I would follow this guy - he writes about security a lot, he has a series at the moment that I am enjoying:
