What is your favorite thing about Infosecurity Magazine? I appreciate the wide-range of topics and the variety of offerings – from blogs to articles to white papers to webinars. I like that the content is written and presented in such a way that people both in and outside the Information Security industry can get value from it. Most of all, I love the fact that the editor is a woman who was an English Literature major. That really resonates with me.
What is your favorite thing about Infosecurity Magazine? Infosecurity magazine has a human face and a community focus; it cares about the issues it reports on and makes a real and very appreciated effort to be a part of the wiser infosec community. If your job as Guest Editor of Infosecurity became permanent, what new content stream would you introduce? Well, over the last few years, video and in particular educational resources delivered using video has kind of become an area of expertise for me.
Today's guest editor Louise Öström faces the questions from the real Infosecurity editor Eleanor Dallaway. How do you describe to your (non-industry) friends what your job is all about? Compare transferring and security of data with sending a postal letter. There are various levels of security in a house that, the front door, entry gate that are comparable to a server security levels.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
