where YouTube comes in, with plenty of cybersecurity-related content. But what are the best channels to follow? Here are our top picks, in no particular order.

1. NetworkChuck

If you prefer entertaining, digestible content, you should consider subscribing to Chuck Keith’s YouTube channel, NetworkChuck. Keith has a knack for breaking down complex topics and explaining them in a way that even complete novices understand.

Though not 100 percent dedicated to cybersecurity, NetworkChuck has plenty of videos about home network security, programming, and malware. This includes plenty of fun, beginner-friendly ethical hacking tutorials, which is a great way to gain some real knowledge.

And if your ambitions extend beyond just learning the basics, NetworkChuck has dozens of videos that might help you get started in the IT industry. Keith also does interviews with professionals in that line of work, so check out the channel if you prefer to consume video content through that format.

2. Jack Rhysider

Jack Rhysider’s is arguably the most unique YouTube channel in the cybersecurity genre. Jack Rhysider explores the topic like a detective or a psychologist, producing high-quality content with engaging storytelling. Even if you don’t really care for cybersecurity as such, the narratives, intrigue, and drama featured in the videos will probably keep you glued to your screen.

Jack Rhysider covers hackers, notable cyberattacks, security vulnerabilities in popular products, online privacy and surveillance, strange and unexplainable events in the cyber world, and other similar stories from “the dark parts of the internet,” as he puts it.

There is an almost cinematic quality to Rhysider’s work, which is probably why his YouTube channel and podcast are as popular as they are. However, he has a background in network security engineering, so his content is also a source of knowledge and expertise.

3. The PC Security Channel

The PC Security Channel (TPSC) has released hundreds of informative and educational videos since 2011. It’s one of the best channels around if you’re someone who wants to learn more about protecting themselves online, but even if you’re well-versed in cybersecurity, you’ll find a lot of their videos compelling.

TPSC creates content on malware, scams, and other cyber threats. The channel also uploads how-to videos, as well as reviews, so it can be a great resource if you’re looking for software recommendations.

What TPSC does really well is product testing videos. They often pit popular anti-malware solutions against ransomware and similar threats to see how they perform. These videos can be very insightful, even entertaining, especially if you want to see how different security software handles real-world threats. And don’t let the name confuse you, TPSC covers mobile security too.
