Blogs
Andy Gill - Zerosec

Andy has some fantastic blog posts, covering everything from setting up virtualisation, application testing methodology, and Burpsuite. Andy is a also a very successful bugbounty hunter, having discovered many vulnerabilities. He is also a heck of nice guy as well, so well worth checking his blog out.

Brian Johnson - 7 minute security

Brian has some great content including some awesome podcasts which as his blog title suggests, are approximately 7 minutes long, ideal to listen to when time is short. He also has some great walkthroughs of some of the vulnhub vms over on his youtube channel. Well worth a visit.

Vulnhub

VulnHub provides materials allowing anyone to gain practical hands-on experience with digital security, computer applications and network administration tasks. There are a variety of Virtual Machines that can be downloaded, allowing you to practise different penetration techniques in a legal manner.

Twitter

If you jump over to my twitter profile you will see that I follow a variety of people and organisations, all of which are related to information security. Feel free to add me or join in the conversation. One of the best ways to get involved in infosec is to start following people who have similar interests to you own and engage with them.
