NB/ Infospectives amateur artistical impression of an award, not a real one.

Finalists were revealed back in March and now the die is cast. Winners have been announced and I’m updating this as the news comes out.
It’s an excellent range of security resources. So I, in service to the industry I love (absolutely no ulterior motives…none…not a single one), have put in links to all the nominated blogs, podcasts and posts.
Just as an aside, this blog may have had one little nomination. See if you can spot Infospectives in there anywhere. Look carefully…it’s easy to miss. No prize this time, but bearing in mind I’m just some random British security pro, who self-authors a largely non-technical blog, the nomination alone was a fantastic and humbling surprise :-).
Voting wasn’t open to everyone. It was only for folk who write or podcast about security. Those in with a chance of winning were picked by Ericka Chickowski, George Hulme, Kelly Jackson-Higgins (Dark Reading), Illena Armstrong (SC Magazine), Eleanor Dallaway (InfoSecurity Magazine) and Rich Mogull (Securosis). < no-one with any influence on the global InfoSec stage then!

    • Thanks Graham, I thought a little ‘subtle’ self promotion was probably permissible 😉 And congrats on yours. I hadn’t realised how young your your blog was, but given I’ve only really been active in the online community for a couple of years, it’s not surprising it seems to me that you’ve always been around. Keep up the fab content creation and breach busting 🙂
