I work in the cybersecurity profession as an analyst / engineer. Keeping well informed of news in the cybersecurity industry is important to what I do. I subscribe to several what I would consider reputable and high quality publications targeted for professionals in the cybersecurity profession. I have found their analysis of threats, vulnerability reporting, and information security trends in general to be very helpful in performing my job.
So far, I have been paying the subscription fees out of pocket. Several colleagues also subscribe to these publications and shared my opinion these are reputable and useful. An example would be this publication.
Given these publications enable me to better perform my job by keeping me informed of industry happenings, would it be appropriate to ask my company for reimbursement on my costs?
How can I best convince management for reimbursement?
