Security Blogger Awards Finalist Voting Is Now Open!

social security bloggers awards 13Well finally I am happy to report that the finalists have been selected and voting for the 5th annual Social Security Blogger Awards is now open!. I know many of you did not understand and were confused by the preliminary rounds of voting. However, our new method of picking finalists has resulted in what we think is our strongest group of finalists ever.

We have many of the blogs and podcasts that have been nominated before (quality is quality), but we also have many new or never before nominated sites as well.  Many thanks to our all star panel of judges who nominated some of the finalists – Bill Brenner of CSO, Kelly Jackson-Higgins of Dark Reading, Wendy Nather of The 451 Group and none other than Beaker himself, Chris Hoff.

Also many thanks to all of the blogs and podcasts who requested to be nominated. Whether you made the finals or not, keep blogging.

You can go vote for your picks here. As in years past, to vote in the finals you have to be a security blogger or podcaster yourself.  All votes are reviewed by humans, so please just vote once and don’t try to game the system.

Special thanks to Trainer Communications for all of the help with voting and helping. Also special thanks to sponsors of the Bloggers Meetup – Qualys, Fortinet, Sourcefire, Akamai, Barracuda Networks and RSA Conference.

Here are the finalists.  Good luck to them all!  Of course winners will be announced at the Bloggers Meet up at RSA Conference 2013.
