Security peeps, I am happy to announce that once again this year we will be conducting the Security Bloggers Network Security Blogger Awards to be presented at the Security Bloggers Meet-up at RSA Conference. Most of you know we have been holding our bloggers meet-up and awards for years now and it is one of the most popular events of RSA Week. This year promises to be no different. More news on the meet-up will be forthcoming, but for now here is the deal with the blogger awards.
We are going to back to basics on the awards this year. We have appointed a blue ribbon panel of your peers who will be nominating the finalists in all categories. Once the judges have made their selections voting will be open to bloggers (around February 20th). Voting will be open for one month. Winners announced at the bloggers meet-up.
The judges this year are:
1. Rich Mogull, CEO, Securosis
2. Illena Armstrong, VP editorial, SC Magazine
3. Kelly Jackson Higgins, Executive editor, Dark Reading
4. George V. Hulme, award winning writer and journalist
5. Ericka Chickowski, award winning security journalist
Some of the judges are “crowdsourcing” their nominations and looking for input from knowledgeable security folks. They will announce if they are looking for input.
The categories for this years awards are:
Best Corporate Security Blog
Best Security Podcast
The Most Educational Security Blog
The Most Entertaining Security Blog
The Single Best Blog Post or Podcast Of The Year
Best New Security Blog
Finalists will be announced around February 20th, so stay tuned.
Good luck to all of you bloggers out there and hope to see you all in San Fran at the Bloggers meetup at RSA Conference!
