For those of you who have been regular visitors to this site over the past few months, this post might seem a bit strange. I’m taking the opportunity today to officially launch The Security Ledger: a security news website dedicated to covering the rapidly expanding landscape of the IT security space.
Yes – I know: Security Ledger has been publishing regularly since late August. But think of that kind of like one of Google’s interminable “beta” periods, in which you keep expectations low and shake out all the bugs before making it official.
So what’s this all about? With help from our sponsors, Qualys Inc. and Veracode, The Security Ledger is dedicated to covering the vastly expanding cyber security landscape. As more and more elements of our daily lives join the “Internet of Things,” The Security Ledger offers original reporting and curated news from the front lines, including coverage of mobile devices, intelligent consumer products, health IT and critical infrastructure.
In a little more than four months of operation, the response to our new site has been fabulous. In our first quarter as a “stealth” security site, securityledger.com racked up more than one million page views and more than 200,000 uniques – proof that there’s an appetite out there for in-depth, original reporting on the many ways that IT security intersects with everyday life.
