I wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate all of the SC Magazine Awards Finalists for everything you have achieved in this last year - and what a year 2010 was!
From Aurora to Stuxnet to Zeus, nefarious hackers have introduced quite a few new and difficult problems for security players like you to tackle. Your leadership is becoming increasingly critical in the battle to keep critical data and systems safe from any number of online criminal groups. Enterprises of all sizes look to your expertise and leadership to better understand and protect against the evolving threats of not only today, but tomorrow, which brings us to the SC Awards Blog.
The SC Awards Blog is a forum for the recognized leaders of IT security to weigh in on the most pressing security issues of the day.
The blog presents our readers with the opportunity to receive the critical guidance and strategy you believe necessary to secure organizations.
If you are an SC Award finalist, we welcome your contribution to this blog to share your vision.
Submissions should not be product endorsements, but should provide high-level strategic guidance to our audience of IT security practitioners. The contributions should be 400-600 words in length and offer thought-provoking discussion about your recommended approach to address today's security needs.
I always look forward to that night, celebrating the successes of winners in great spirits with your peers and rivals. To register for the event, please visit here.
We hope the SC Awards Blog provides our readers with the valuable insight they need for the coming year.
