The security week that was: 02/27/09

Announcing new changes coming for

We've also made it easier to get to some of the great content that we had added since we originally designed the site. No longer will you have to hunt to find out where to add your events to our calendar, what our next webinar will cover, or what the newest video surveillance product is.

We hope you enjoy the newly reconfigured site when it launches next week, and we hope you'll send us emails ( to tell us about any squeaky floorboards or places where some touch-up paint is needed in our new house. We are committed to providing you a wonderful (and free) source of information, assessment and community, and we are continually honored to have you as our site users and readers. We'll be sending an email to everyone registered for our newsletters to announce the new site when it goes live, but until then, we're going to refill our coffee mugs, put our noses back in the code and finish up some last-minute things.
