The Latest in Security Style Guide Happenings

The Bishop Fox Cybersecurity Style Guide has been constantly evolving since its initial rollout in February 2018. It’s undergone one other iteration (v1.1, which you can find here) – until now, that is.
For our audience’s convenience, we decided to create a digital version of the security style guide.
The New Features of the Digital Cybersecurity Style Guide
The digital style guide has several new features that you may find useful. We thought about what might benefit our users the most, so we added things like a search function, a form for potential contributors, and interactivity for terms that makes for a fairly pleasant browsing experience.
But perhaps the most important new feature is the ability for more real-time updating, which keeps the digital version of the security style guide an evergreen resource. The digital guide will continuously keep track of the last time new information was added or existing information was adjusted (seen in a small subheading near the top of the page). This eliminates concerns about the relevancy or timeliness of terms (whew!)
Peruse the guide and play around with it a bit. If you have feedback, as always, we want to hear it! Style@bishopfox.com is a good way to make your voice heard.
What’s Next for the Guide? Updates
Circle of HOPE
As you may have heard by now, the style guide has inspired a hacker spelling bee, SpellCheck. This was the beginning of a “world tour” of sorts – first stop, right here in our Tempe office. Second stop? Noneother than Circle of HOPE in New York City on July 20th.
DEF CON 26
The final stop for SpellCheck (for now) will be its penultimate destination: DEF CON 26. We hope you can make it and prove your elite spelling chops. Otherwise, keep using the guide and stay posted for more updates, as this is always a work in progress.
