Awards season is upon us! I’d like to welcome all our readers back to the SC Magazine Awards Blog, which is now live again as we approach the RSA Conference and the naming of the SC Awards winners. Similar to last year, the Awards Blog will feature commentary from C-level executives of our SC Awards finalists who will share their perspectives on trends in the IT security industry and the issues that should be top of mind for all organizations.

All subjects related to the critical issues and challenges facing our industry are open to discussion, and we welcome our readers and site visitors to comment on the Awards Blog postings. SC Awards finalists who would like to participate in the Awards Blog can do so by following the few simple guidelines below. All you need to do is email your posting or commentary to me at chuck.miller@haymarketmedia.com and I will post them on our site.

SC Award blog guidelines:

  • Blog submissions should not exceed 500 words.

  • All submissions should be vendor-agnostic and exclude product/service proselytizing.

  • Blog postings and commentary should focus on topics, trends and risks most relevant to today’s security industry.

  • Blog submissions must include byline, title and company name for author.


Welcome, again, to the SC Awards blog! We hope you’ll find this forum an excellent way to gain insight into the security thought leadership of our industry.
