Introducing the Cybersecurity Style Guide: V1.1

Many thanks for the tweet by Yoel Strimling (@reb_yoel), editor of Corrigo, the Official Publication of the STC Technical Editing SIG (@stc_te_sig), for the post "From Around the Web: The Cybersecurity Style Guide".

The latest version of the Bishop Fox Cybersecurity Style Guide by Brianne Hughes and her team is now available. Download Version 1.1 According to Brianne's post, the revised style guide covers common tools for security research, angles of attack, corporate jargon, and pop culture. A new Appendix B is about using progressive language, and most terms include parts of speech.

This is a living reference work and we welcome your feedback. If you have suggestions for future improvement, please let us know at style@bishopfox.com.
