Best Reddit Subreddits for Cybersecurity and Hacking!

Reddit is a very useful website for discussions about everything.

For cybersecurity and hacking too, it has useful subreddits, in which, you will learn a lot of things you previously had no knowledge of.

So, I have compiled a list of security related subreddits.

1. Active and Most helpful subreddits:




These three are pretty much it. They have very active communities and are very helpful. I, personally use  /r/netsecstudents a lot because I'm still in the process of learning and that subreddit(if you look properly) will tell you how to make a career in every security field.

2. Security Certification Subreddits:

r/CompTIA (for Security+)

r/ccna (for CCNA and CCNA Security, also r/ccnp for CCNP)

r/CEH (for CEH)

r/cissp (Certified Information Systems Security Professional)

r/oscp (Offensive Security Certified Professional)

Really helpful if you're doing any of these Certs.

3. Other active subreddits:

/r/hacking

/r/blackhat

/r/howtohack

/r/security

/r/Information_Security
 
/r/cybersecurity

/r/pwned

/r/Defcon

These subreddits are just, meh. Yes, you can find a lot of information and learn a lot of things if you look properly. But, they have a lot of unwanted stuff that is useless and boring to you. These are really popular with normal users. It is still useful sometimes, so subscribing to these is your opinion.


4. Topic specific and less active subreddits:


Please check what interests you in this.

On July 10th I passed the CEH with 105/125 questions right and this is the write up to the exam and certification.

I got really interested in the CEH because it was a well known certification and the syllabus really interested me.

I also had a ton of recommendations online and from people in this industry saying that the CEH was a really good beginner level security certification.


Details about the exam and course:
I bought the course from the EC-Council website. There are certain requirements if you want to take this certification.

You should either have 2 years experience or buy their online iClass to attempt the exam. As I did not have the required experience I bought the online course.
The EC-Council website and how everything works with them is very confusing and I got very confused at times. But thankfully, the customer support answered all my questions and guided me through the buying process and the registration.
The course costs $1100 USD in India but I bought the course during t…
