About this time last year, Marco Ciappelli and I turned the idea of starting an information security magazine designed to connect with our society in a different way into a reality. Though we were capturing press releases from vendors and even writing a few stories of our own earlier in the year, it wasn’t until we attended RSA Conference 2016 that we officially launched ITSPmagazine.
Since that time, we’ve published over 800 Word on the Street articles, over 200 press releases, and have launched 3 columns—Equal Respect, The Academy and An InfoSec Life. These columns represent a collection of over 150 unique newsroom articles produced by our 225 (and counting) expert contributors.
Most recently, we added a section called Their Story where executives and other InfoSec leaders explain how they value their work, what their employees do every day to help protect our privacy, what moves them, and how their solutions make a positive impact on our everyday life—as individuals and for our society as a whole.
We are still a boutique cybersecurity publication and we’re fine with that because our audience loves what we are doing, as is clear by our tremendous growth since January of this year.
In the midst of this great progress—success that’s only possible through the hard work of our amazing team—I take great pride in sharing with you that our magazine has become an official media sponsor for RSA Conference 2017!
In connection with this 1-year anniversary, we’ve launched our RSA Conference 2017 coverage page where we are posting all sorts of content in relation to the conference. We are also doubling our conference coverage team to ensure that we make the most of the event; if there’s a story about the intersection of IT Security and Society, we’ll find it and share it with you, our loyal readers. If you have a story you’re burning to tell, let us know by using the form on our coverage page.
We hope to see you at the conference and get a chance to chat!
