Recommended Sites

There are so many good blogs and websites out there with excellent information.  There are just way too many to list individually, and why recreate the wheel when someone else is already doing it. 

I recommend you visit this site weekly for current information related to digital forensics, incident response, and malware analysis.  Topics include software updates, software releases, presentations, forensic analysis, malware, and miscellaneous information related to the field.
