Blogs: another tool in the security pro's toolkit (part one)

My name is Scott, and I'm an information addict.

I'll admit, I love information. No, make that I love and need information. If you're interested in keeping up with trends and changes in security, you're probably an information addict as well. You absorb security-related information and then ponder, examine, and analyze it before reshaping it in a way that helps protect your data, your systems, and your networks.

Here's the problem: security delayed is security denied. There is more information than you can read or absorb. That means you might miss some key points, trends, warnings, or fixes. And the price for missing them can be enormous.

There is a solution. You can feed your addiction, get better security results, and spend less time doing it. I'm living proof. In order to gather information, I use the Web, of course, and email. In fact, I once subscribed to an unbelievable number of email newsletters. But lately, I've unsubscribed to many of them. Yet my gathering of information has increased in terms of content, timeliness, efficiency, and effectiveness. You can experience the same benefits. How?
