Want to get your message in front of thousands of security professionals?

Before jumping into the details, I want to make it clear that, for me, it is of paramount importance for sponsorships not to impact the quality or unbiased nature of CloudSecList negatively.

I generally do not endorse companies or products. CloudSecList's purpose is to highlight security-related news focused on the cloud-native landscape and help people stay updated with this corner of the security scenario. Content is included in the newsletter exclusively based on its technical merits and usefulness to readers.

What Does Sponsorship Look Like

You can include a brief blurb (400-600 characters) about your company, product, event, or job opening.

The blurb will be placed in a clearly demarcated section and will be included in:

  1. The newsletter sent to CloudSecList subscribers
  2. The corresponding post on cloudseclist.com (available from the Past Issues page)

You can look at what this will look like by browsing the Past Issues.

Currently, there are two sponsor slots available per issue.

What Sort of Engagement Should You Expect?

Subscribers vary from hands-on security professionals working as security engineers or SOC analysts, to security managers, heads of, as well as CISOs, CSOs, security founders, senior leaders, and VCs.

Overall, readers come from different backgrounds and are distributed across the globe. The companies represented are fairly diverse as well, from small start-ups to Fortune500 and FAANG companies, in industries ranging from tech, to healthcare, finance, and government.

The process is quite straightforward:

  • Find an available slot
    Check the "Upcoming Reservations" list below for available slots.
  • Reach out to [email protected]
    Send your product/event/job advert idea, alongside your organizational details, and we'll work out the details.
  • We will flesh out the details
    We will agree on dates, number of slots and price (discounts may be available for bulk sponsorships).
  • I will send a lightweight agreement
    Which will recap the details agreed upon.
  • We will work together on defining the best format for your sponsored messages
    We will collaborate on the best format/content for your adverts before the release of each agreed issue.

Upcoming Reservations

"What's the 'optimum' week to book?" This varies on each company's preference. Some companies decide to book in correspondence with the release of a new product or the weeks before an event they host. So that depends on the content you choose to promote. That said, a typical pattern I see is companies booking one slot per month for at least two consecutive quarters.

Terms and Conditions

  • Privacy: CloudSecList takes the privacy of readers very seriously. There is a conscious effort NOT to collect additional information about the CloudSecList readership outside of an email address (which, of course, will NOT be shared with advertisers, ever). In addition, CloudSecList does not track individual open and click rates, but only the global (and anonymised) ones.
  • Ad Timing: The newsletter is typically sent on Sundays. There may be weeks where the newsletter is sent earlier or later due to life circumstances, travel, or timezone differences, but this is the exception, not the rule.
  • Ad Format: You can include a brief blurb (400-600 characters) about your company, product, event, or job opening. The blurb will be placed in a clearly demarcated section (the yellow sponsor box). The naming "Sponsor" at the top is agnostic of the actual sponsor and is used for consistency and fairness to the readers.
  • Integrity and Unbiased view: Sponsoring an issue does not give any influence on the rest of the newsletter. A competitor's tool, blog post, or talk may be referenced in the issue you sponsor. Similarly, an article that negatively covers your company or product may be included in the issue you sponsor.
  • Right to refuse sponsorship: CloudSecList reserves the right to refuse sponsorship requests for any reason.
