8th Birthday Cupcake

Security Ledger Turns 8!

Today marks eight years since the first Security Ledger post went live back on October 2, 2012. (That story was “After VOHO Attacks, Organizations Face Arduous Cleanup,” which concerned a string of watering hole attacks.)

In recognition, I’d like to take a moment to pause…take a deep breath and contemplate the nearly 1,800 articles and blog posts and millions of visitors who have graced SecurityLedger.com since that long-passed date.

Thanks to our sponsors!

We really couldn’t have made it this far without our readers, the many contributing writers who have added their thoughts to the site and – of course- our sponsors: RSA, LastPass/LogMeIn, Digicert, Trusted Computing Group, and QOMPLX. Thanks also to our many sponsors over the last eight years. Your financial support helped make Security Ledger a success!

A New Look

I’d also like to call attention to some changes at the site. Notably: we’ve updated the look of our home page: sprucing it up and also bringing our weekly- and spotlight podcasts front and center.

Of course, we’re still reporting and covering threats, attacks and disruptive technology and developments in the infosec space but podcasting has become a bigger part of our editorial output in the last year. We felt like the site should reflect that.

Podcast Series

On podcasts, we’re continuing to offer sponsors the opportunity to sponsor our weekly podcast as well as dedicated Spotlight podcasts. (Check out our Sales page if you’re interested in sponsoring a podcast.)

But we’re also providing a bit more direction and editorial insight going into Q4 and 2021. That includes a number of thematic podcasts like our CISO Close Up series in which we invite top CISOs into the Security Ledger studio to talk about the challenges, risks and rewards of being a security executive in a time of “great change.” Our recent interview with Andy Jaquith of QOMPLX is a good example of that. Aside from our CISO series we’ll be using our podcast to dig deep on some of the trends in news and technology that we think will shape the information security space in 2021 and beyond. Our recent interview with GitLab VP of Security Jonathan Hunt is an example of that, as we talk to some of the companies on the cutting edge of security’s “shift left” to more developer-centric offerings. Look for more talks like that in the weeks and months ahead.

Stay Tuned!

Stay tuned in the weeks ahead for more information on these editorial initiatives including a reader survey, a 2021 editorial calendar and – for our sponsors – an updated media kit and details on sponsorship opportunities.

Thanks again to everyone who has helped us make the past eight years of Security Ledger such a success!
