Have You Ever Seen A Cybersecurity Ghostwriter?

They’re hiding in plain sight on our list

Are you a cybersecurity founder or CEO suffering from writer’s block? No worries, just dial up a ghostwriter.

Ghostwriters are paid to write articles, books, and a myriad of other texts that are officially credited to another person as the author.

Can you see a ghost[writer]?

Our full-time staff writers and freelancers author all of our own articles. But we have in fact seen some very good ghostwriters who specialize in technology and cybersecurity.

A bit of caution before you plunge into putting your name on content written by another person: Make sure your ghostwriter’s experience lines up to the type of material you need published.

If you’re looking for someone to write articles under your name for Cybercrime Magazine, then we urge you to use someone with a deep background in journalism. A master at writing white papers and marketing collateral may be a newbie when it comes to articles in well-known media outlets.
