Newsletter #7 2023

Published on: December 03, 2023


First of all, thank you for subscribing and reading the EndpointCave security newsletter.

I feel honored that you will join me on the journey of this bi-weekly Security Newsletter! My goal is to deliver valuable security content directly to you and your inbox.

But I need your help, do you have any valuable content that needs to be shared with the community? Did you create a security blog post or did you find a security-related news item that needs to be mentioned in my upcoming newsletters?

Please send me a message. You can contact me on Twitter (X) or LinkedIn.

The community has created a lot of content in the past two weeks. I want to share some of those blogs and videos with you. First of all, I want to highlight some content and after the highlights and video, I have shared some blogs from the community for the community. I assume that one of those topics will be interesting for you.

For your information, this will be the last newsletter for 2023. I will enjoy my two-week Christmas holiday. I will be back next year. So it is maybe a little bit early but I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
