The New Cybersecurity Trending Dashboard (Beta)

An at-a-glance overview of the evolving cybersecurity threat landscape

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!

Trending Threats

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).

The today section now includes a Trending in Cybersecurity dashboard

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!)

Trending Vulnerabilities

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.

Using the Less Like This down arrow button to offer Leo 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?

Yes. If you go to your Leo preferences (https://feedly.com/i/account/leo) and scroll to the bottom of that page, you will see an option to hide the Trending Dashboard.

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 leo@feedly.com

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.

The right login

The feedly app allows you to login to your feedly using a Google, Facebook, Twitter, Evernote, Microsoft or Feedly login. If you land into a feedly and do not see your feeds and collections, it is likely that you used a different login. The solution to this is to log out and log back in using your initial feedly login. Here are some tips to help you do this:

Tip #1: Who I am logged in as?
At the bottom of the left selector, you will find information about who you are currently logged in as. Please make sure that the email/id and service you are currently logged in as is the same as the email/service you used to sign up initially to feedly.

Tip #2: “I don’t remember using a social login!”
If you are a long time feedly user and do not remember which login you used to create your feedly account, you most likely used the Google login – we only supported Google at inception. If you migrated during the retirement of Google Reader, try to use the same Google email as you used for Google reader.

Tip #3: Handling multiple Google logins
Google has a feature – annoying bug – where it will try to automatically log you to the account you use on Google.com. If you use a different Google login for feedly and for google.com or use multiple google.com logins, please double check that you are logged in with the correct account.
To select which account you are logging in from, go to Google.com and in the upper right corner, click on your picture or avatar, underneath you will see the list of Google Accounts you are currently signed into. If you don’t see the account you normally log in from, you can add it from there.
Next, when you log out of feedly and log back in, you will have the option to pick the account you want to use.

Tip #4: Attaching multiple logins to the same feedly account
If you have created multiple logins before and you don’t know which one you should use, have a look here: http://feedly.com/i/logins

Tip #5: Erasing your feedly account
The feedly erase page allows you to completely delete your feedly account and all your personal information from the feedly system. Please keep in mind that this operation can not be undone.

If you tried all these steps and are not able to login to your feedly or are not seeing your feed list after logging it, please contact Pro support if you are a pro user or ask a question on the Open feedly community.

Happy reading
