Another to add to your list and your RSS feedreader, Google Online Security Blog.

Google Security Blog

Online security is an important topic for Google, our users, and anyone who uses the Internet. The related issues are complex and dynamic and we’ve been looking for a way to foster discussion on the topic and keep users informed. Thus, we’ve started this blog where we hope to periodically provide updates on recent trends, interesting findings, and efforts related to online security. Among the issues we’ll tackle is malware, which is the subject of our inaugural post.

    Im just wondering has google really much of an interest in marketing security information.
    Im not sure I can see how they would make money from this.
    But they are fairly good at what they do so I think this one would be worth keeping an eye on.

    The Google Security Blog has been active for two weeks, but there’s only two posts so far. They’ll need to be a lot more productive than that to gather a loyal readership. As the new Cobia Product Evangelist, I understand how being responsible for a corporate blog can lead to stage fright from recent, personal experience. I’m just now getting over it myself.

    I hope the folks at Google start writing more. They’ve got some good people there.

    I agree, they have some great people so I hope they put them to good use and post more frequently. I’d like to see how Google is combating malware and what their engineers think of things in general. I hope they don’t stick to Google only matters and use their expertise to discuss a broader range of topics.

    Good luck with Cobia Martin.
