Frequently Asked Questions

The CyberNest is an exclusive peer review and information sharing platform for IT and cybersecurity professionals in midsize and large enterprises, including former practitioners now in consulting. Applicants must apply to access our collaborative environment, equipped with advanced tools for discovering, reviewing, and sharing security content.

Yes, we firmly believe in providing access to high-quality, trusted security resources to all eligible IT and cybersecurity professionals who meet our admission criteria. We do plan to monetize via a subscription model for add-on features in the future. You can always stay a free member. We will never accept payment for content distribution. This model will never change to avoid bias and competing interests towards our mission. Vendors are permitted to share content with The CyberNest through a licensing model; however, this is still a free engagement and is intended to ensure content relevance for our members. Ultimately, our members decide the quality of the information, and we pride ourselves on providing them with the autonomy to do so.

After you submit your application, our team will review it to determine whether you meet our admission criteria. If you meet our criteria, you will be accepted into the community and will be able to access your account to start engaging in community-based research with your peers. We will notify you by email. You can also check the status of your application by re-signing in via email or LinkedIn.

The CyberNest is confidential. Members agree to follow Rules of Engagement covering confidentiality, communication, and conduct. We adopt the Chatham House Rule, preserving identity secrecy. The information and insights shared remain private, not for public sharing. These rules are strictly enforced. If a member violates any of the policies, including confidentiality, we reserve the right to remove their access to our community platform.
