I went to the Security Blogger Meetup this week at RSA and met up with a lot of friends and colleagues that I haven’t seen in a while. Alan Shimel made a point that a lot of the “old” bloggers weren’t writing as often as they had in the past, but luckily a lot of new ones with great content were emerging – there were over 100 attendees at this years meetup, which was pretty impressive. That is obviously a lot of blogs to read each week, but if you want to filter it down a bit, you might take a look at the nominees for awards this year.
Along those lines, there was one new category that I wanted to share – The single best security blog post of the year. The nominees were:
- The Death of Security as We Know It (http://techbuddha.wordpress.com/2010/11/16/2011-the-death-of-security-as-we-know-it-or-operationalizing-security/)
- CyberSecurity and National Policy by Dan Geer (http://www.harvardnsj.com/2010/04/cybersecurity-and-national-policy/)
