Keeping up with the most critical threats, vulnerabilities, and threat actors can be time consuming and overwhelming.
We have been working with a few existing Feedly for Cybersecurity customers to create a trending dashboard that offers an at-a-glance overview of the evolving cybersecurity threat landscape.
Today, we are excited to launch a beta of the Cybersecurity Trending Dashboard to all the Feedly for Cybersecurity customers.
Here is a quick demo!
The first component of the Trending Dashboard is a list of the trending threats reported across 1,200 different cybersecurity sources (new sites, blogs, or twitter accounts).
It allows you to get a quick overview of what are the critical threats that are being reported across all the cybersecurity sites the Feedly community is reading. You can think of this as a TechMeme for Cybersecurity.
The model producing this dashboard is focusing on the news published in the last 24 hours.
Behind the scene, Leo is reading all the articles across all the cybersecurity sources and twitter accounts, dismissing the ones that are not about cybersecurity threats, clustering the ones that are reporting the same threat, and ranking them using different “features”.
The initial model we are pushing to beta is a global model. This means that your personal priorities and mute filters are not affecting this model (yet!)
The second component is a list of the trending vulnerabilities that are being discovered or discussed across Cybersecurity sources.
You can click on a specific vulnerability and drill down to a page that captures all the mentions and chatter around that vulnerability.
Trending Threat Actors
The last component is a list of trending threat actor mentions. It allows you to get an overview of which threat actors are being covered in the news.
You can click on a specific threat actor and get a “Search across the Web” overview of the mentions.
Continuously learning and getting smarter
Every component has a “Less Like This” down arrow button that you can use to provide feedback to Leo. The feedback is going to be reviewed by the product team during the beta to understand how to improve the relevant, deduplication, and prioritization. Leo loves candid feedback.
We look forward to listening to your feedback and continuously improving the Cybersecurity Trending Dashboard over the next 8 weeks.
We also want to thank the customers who suggested this feature and worked with us during the Alpha. You know who you are!
Can I remove the Trending Cybersecurity Dashboard from my Today page?
Can I personalize the Trending Cybersecurity Dashboard?
Not in the current version. Once we have the core model optimized, we will look at ways to allow you personalize the dashboard by industry, product, threat types.
What is the best way to offer feedback to the product team during the beta?
If you have feedback regarding specific articles or CVEs, please use the Less Like This down arrow button to submit your feedback. If you have ideas on how to improve the concept, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I get a Demo of Feedly for Cybersecurity?
If you are part of a cybersecurity team and want to get a demo of how Feedly for Cybersecurity can help you streamline your open source intelligence, you can request a demo and a free trial here.
Can I access the Cybersecurity Trending Dashboard in the Feedly Mobils App?
Not yet. The beta is only available in the Feedly Web application. We will integrate this feature into the mobile experience once the beta is complete.
Newsletters are quickly becoming the best way to get curated insights on specific topics, trends, or industries. But inboxes aren’t the best place for focused reading. Keeping up with newsletters in your inbox can be a disorganized, distracting, and overwhelming experience.
That’s why you can now get newsletters in Feedly. Keep up with the topics and trends that matter to you, without all the distractions.
“I used to miss a lot of newsletters in my inbox because they would come at different times of day, and they would get put into different folders. Now that I get newsletters in Feedly, I can organize them into one single stream. I can capture and analyze all the content I need.”
Start getting newsletters in Feedly
Get your email newsletters in Feedly so you can read without distractions and declutter your inbox. Now available to all users in our Pro+ plan.
Subscribe to newsletters with Feedly email addresses
You can now add newsletters to your feeds in Feedly and organize them just like any other source. This feature is available for all Pro+, Business, and Enterprise users.
Go to the ‘Newsletters’ tab in your Feedly to get started.
Let’s imagine you are the Director of Operations at an e-commerce company and you need to follow the Exponential View newsletter to keep up with news about retail, business and tech. Here’s how you would get the Exponential View newsletter in Feedly:
- Go to the ‘Newsletters’ tab and generate a unique Feedly email address.
- Use the Feedly email address to subscribe to the newsletter.
- Assign a name to the newsletter source and choose a feed that you want it to be delivered to.
- Success! The content from this newsletter will now be delivered to your Feedly.
If the newsletter has a double opt-in (to confirm your email address), the confirmation email will be sent to your Feedly, and you’ll have to click the confirmation link before you can receive newsletter content.
We recommend using a different email address for each newsletter so that you can organize them easily in your feeds.
Organize and read newsletters with the rest of your content
Once you’ve added newsletters to your feeds, you can organize, read, and annotate them just like any other source.
If you use Feedly with your team, you can add newsletter content to Team Boards and add notes or highlights to call out the important parts.
I now have a one-stop information hub. I can save time when reading essential information from newsletters on Feedly rather than being distracted by other emails.
Leverage Leo to prioritize must-reads
To keep your reading even more focused, use Leo, your AI research assistant, to filter out any noise and surface the most valuable content for you.
Train Leo to prioritize the most important topics, trends, competitors, or events in your newsletter content.
Or, train Leo to mute topics you don’t care about.

Inboxes aren’t the best place for focused reading. Get your email newsletters in Feedly so you can read without the distractions. Now available to all users in our Pro+ plan.
FAQs about getting newsletters in Feedly
How can I subscribe to a newsletter that requires me to log in to the website first?
You can log in to the website with your real email address. Once you subscribe, set up a rule in your email application to forward the newsletter to your Feedly email. You can then delete it from your email inbox.
Can I automatically forward existing newsletters from my inbox to Feedly?
Yes, you can. Generate a Feedly email address and create a forward rule in your email application to forward your existing newsletters to that Feedly email address.
Forwarded newsletter emails will show up in your Feedly. We recommend generating one email address per newsletter so that you can easily organize newsletters in your Feedly as individual sources.
Can I import newsletters from my email?
Currently, you can’t import newsletters from your email. However, you can forward newsletters directly from your email (instead of resubscribing on the newsletter website). Generate a Feedly email address and create a rule in your email application to forward each newsletter.
How many newsletters can I subscribe to in Feedly?
Pro+ users can follow up to 25 newsletters. Business users can follow up to 50 newsletters, and Enterprise users can follow up to 100 newsletters.
Can I subscribe to multiple newsletters with the same generated Feedly email address?
Yes, but it is not recommended. We recommend subscribing to newsletters with unique Feedly email addresses for each newsletter so you can then organize them into your feeds.
How can I unsubscribe from a newsletter I added to my feeds?
To unsubscribe from a newsletter, right-click on the newsletter source in the left navigation bar, and click ‘Unfollow’.
Does following a newsletter in Feedly impact the analytics of the newsletter publisher?
No. When you open and read a newsletter in Feedly, the content creator gets the same analytics as when you open and read the newsletter in your inbox.
In the wake of recent acts of extreme brutality and injustice and mass protests, we’re examining our role in perpetuating systems of inequality. We are responsible for our impact as a tech company, as a news reader, and, acutely, as a developer of machine learning algorithms for Leo, your AI research assistant.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are powerful tools that allow Leo to read thousands of articles published every day and prioritize a top selection based on the topics, organizations, and trends that matter to you. However, if not designed intentionally, these tools run the risk of reinforcing harmful cultural biases.
Bias sneaks into machine learning algorithms by way of incomplete or imbalanced training data. Without realizing it, we miss or overrepresent certain variables and the algorithm learns the wrong information, often with dangerous outcomes.
In the case of Leo, we risk introducing bias when teaching him broad topics such as “leadership.” Leo learns these topics by finding common themes in sets of articles curated by the Feedly team. For the topic “leadership,” Leo might pick out themes like strong management skills and building a supportive team culture. However, if more articles about male leaders than female are published or added to the training set, Leo might also learn that being male is a quality of leadership. Tracking which themes Leo learns is an essential part of topic modeling that helps prevent us from reinforcing our biases or those of the article author or publisher.
It’s on us as developers to be deliberate and transparent about the way we account for bias in our training process. With that in mind, we’re excited to share what we’re working on to reduce bias at the most crucial stage: the training data
Break down silos
Collaboration among folks from diverse backgrounds helps us account for our blind spots. However, to make that collaboration possible, we need an accessible tool. The new topic modeler is that tool — designed so that anyone in the Feedly community can help curate a dataset to train Leo about topics they’re passionate about.
The topic modeler takes advantage of the Feedly UI we know and love to allow multiple users to search for articles for the training set and review Leo’s learning progress. Our goal is to connect with experts in a variety of fields to build robust topics that represent our entire community — not just the engineering team.
Put to the test: the diversity topic
Recently, two Feedly team members with no machine learning experience and who are interested in diversity issues road tested the new tool to redesign our diversity topic. The result is a topic that is rich and nuanced: rather than focusing only on the buzzword “diversity,” Leo will be looking for thousands of related keywords, including representation, inclusion, bias, discrimination, equal rights, and intersectionality. Now you can train Leo to track diversity and inclusion progress in your industry and find essential information for how to build and maintain inclusive work cultures and hiring practices.
Leo continuously learns
Topic modeling is not the only way to collaborate. Any Feedly user can help Leo learn. When Leo is wrong, you can use the ‘Less Like This’ down arrow button to let him know that an article he’s prioritized isn’t about a particular subject.
Leo will also seek your feedback occasionally via a prompt at the top of an article. If you see “Is this article about [topic]?,” let him know! Your feedback gets incorporated into Leo’s training set to fill in any gaps we missed and strengthen his understanding.
Join the movement
Beyond in-app feedback, feel free to reach out via email or join the Feedly Community Slack channel, especially if you have a topic for Leo to learn about. This is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to addressing and dismantling systemic bias. We take our role as content mediators seriously and know that we are indebted to those who have fought for so long to bring these issues to our attention. Leo is listening and learning.
