  • Include a Short Bio: We require submissions to be accompanied by the author’s preferred name, job title, headshot and short bio.

Tips for Submissions

  • Choose a Relevant Topic: Select a topic that is timely and relevant to the cybersecurity community. Your op-ed should contribute to ongoing conversations or address current events.
  • Craft a Strong Hook: Your opening paragraph should capture readers' attention and clearly introduce the main point of your op-ed. A compelling hook will encourage readers to continue reading
  • Develop a Clear Thesis: State your main argument or thesis early in the op-ed. This helps readers understand the point you're making and the perspective you're presenting.
  • Provide Supporting Evidence: Back up your argument with solid evidence, examples, data, or anecdotes. This lends credibility to your piece and helps readers understand the basis of your opinion.
  • Be Concise and Clear: Online readers have shorter attention spans, so keep your writing concise and avoid unnecessary jargon. Write in a clear, straightforward manner to ensure your message is easily understood.
  • Offer a Unique Perspective: Op-eds stand out when they present fresh and unique viewpoints. Avoid rehashing common opinions and strive to add something new to the conversation.
  • Consider Counterarguments: Address potential counterarguments to your position. This shows that you've considered alternative viewpoints and strengthens your own argument.
  • Provide Solutions: Offer practical solutions or suggestions related to the issue you're discussing. This can make your op-ed more actionable and relevant.
  • Be Open to Revisions: If your op-ed is accepted, be prepared for the possibility that the editor might request revisions.
  • Edit and Proofread: Proofread your op-ed for grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. An op-ed with good writing and proper editing is more likely to be taken seriously.
  • Know the Guidelines: Make sure you have read this page and understand what is expected of each submission. Failure to adhere to these guidelines could result in your piece being rejected.

What Gets Rejected

  • Any submissions must be exclusive to Infosecurity. We will not consider publishing content we have seen elsewhere.
  • 'Back to basics’ pitches. Infosecurity readers are aware of current issues. We are looking for opinions on solving problems rather than discussions on what the problems are.
  • Sales pitches, marketing materials or product promotions. 
  • Do not try to cover too much – be great on one topic rather than average on multiple areas.
