With the SC Magazine Awards Blog, we're attempting to add thought-provoking subject matter from industry leaders on a wide variety of topics and issues facing the security industry today. Hopefully, these blog posts are providing you additional value and insight into the state of the industry and a forward-looking forum on the challenges we are likely to see in the future.
We're using a blog format, because as the threats and issues develop today, we believe that blogging is a key manner of communication and conversation that can quickly generate discussion among peers and other industry experts.
Many of our contributors and other security pundits blog on a regular basis in their own forums, offering their take on today's evolving threat landscape. This year, the SC Awards would also like to begin to recognize these pioneers in their own evangelist efforts.
I'm happy to announce that, for the first time ever, as part of the 2010 SC Awards program, we hope to formally recognize the security industries most popular, poignant and prolific security bloggers.
Contest details: We will be recognizing three blogging categories — Most Popular Security Blogger, Best Corporate Security Blog and "Five to Follow," a collection of the top five security pundits on Twitter.
