Darknet – A Finalist For The 2010 Social Security Bloggers Awards

Prevent Network Security Leaks with Acunetix

2010 Social Security Bloggers Awards

Well this is a first for me and this blog, Darknet has been nominated for a blogging award and selected as a finalist! There’s some heavy-weights in our category too like SANS ISC and Evil Bytes from Dark Reading.

If you don’t know about SBN (Security Bloggers Network) it’s a VERY good collection of RSS feeds in the security arena, blogs rather than news sites hence the name.

It started out way back as a Feedburner group consolidating all the security related blog feeds on the Feedburner network into one feed. You can find the current RSS feed here:

Security Bloggers Network

With our contributions here:

Darknet – Security Bloggers Network

If you’re interested do check out the members (you’ve probably already subscribed to quite a few) and some of the stronger ones are amongst the nominations below.

Obviously being in the same category as SANS ISC I won’t be wasting any time writing an acceptance speech. It is an honor to be in the same list as blogs like Bruce Schneier’s and Tao Security even if it’s in a different category.

You can find a complete listing of the finalists here:
