Before joining Threatpost in August, 2010, I spent more than a decade covering hacking and computer security as a reporter, editor and industry analyst. During that time, I watched the balance of power in the publishing industry shift, as technology and the Internet dismantled the status quo and empowered an army of knowledgeable users to become micro publishers and content creators.
In less than two years, Threatpost.com has attracted a large reading audience and led the way in its coverage of software security (and insecurity), malicious code outbreaks, hacking and cybercrime. We’re a hard hitting, editorially independent news Web site with a mission to raise the level of reporting and discussion about online threats for an audience of savvy readers.
