Keen to explore the Infosec Blogosphere? Here’s a useful map (Thanks to #RSAC)

January 31, 2012

The Countdown team are always on the lookout for handy resources for the Infosec PR and marketing community, so when we were planning our fun at RSA later this month we found a little gem. We stumbled across a very nice tour guide for those in search of the great and and the good of the security blogger world.

The Security Bloggers Network syndicates blog posts from a long list of top notch security bloggers (Don’t worry we’ll be asking for interview for the blog here!). Many names you’ll recognize and many that you may not. Give it a visit and enjoy your trip!


We also spied the Social Security Blogger Awards which is announced each year at the Bloggers Meet up at the US RSA show. Nominations are usually by a panel of blue collar judges made up of some of the leading security journalists in the media.  Voting for the actual winners is done by SBN members.

What sets the SSBA apart is it is not a popularity contest, but rather an award by security bloggers and podcasters for bloggers and podcasters. It is truly a guild or peer award. Any blog or podcast that is nominated to the finalists represents the best of the best in their category.

Here are the finalists for the 2011 awards:

Before the finalists, special thanks to our all star panel of celebrity judges:

1. Bill Brenner of CSOOnline

2. Ellen Messmer of Network World

3. Kelly Jackson-Higgins of Dark Reading

4. Larry Walsh of Channelnomics

Without further delay I am very pleased to announce the finalists for the 3rd Annual Social Security Blogger Awards:

Best Corporate Security Blog

Best Security podcast

Most educational security blog

Most entertaining security blog

Security Blog that best represents the industry

The single best security blog post of the year
