And the most entertaining security blog is…


TrophyI’m deeply honoured to announce that this site has been recognised at the RSA Security Blogger Awards, held last night in San Francisco.

At a glittering and glamorous gala event - surrounded by nibbles and pool tables - the world’s elite security bloggers gathered in their t-shirts to find out who had won gongs.

The awards are significant - because the only people eligible to vote are people who blog or podcast about computer security.

So, I’m delighted to say that Graham Cluley Security News won in its nominated category, and can now claim to be:

Most Entertaining Security Blog


I’m really chuffed to receive the award. So thanks to all who voted, and indeed anyone who agreed to let me hijack their computer into a botnet to help me swing it at the last minute. :)

Only kidding. Maybe.

By the way, thanks also to everybody who recently took part in the poll I ran on Twitter and Facebook asking followers to choose a new logo for the site. I hope you like the new design.

    Hi Graham, hurray !!! This award was well deserved. Unfortunately, I coudn’t vote, as I am no security blogger, but could I have voted, I would have voted in your favour. Keep up the good work, would love to see your blog around for many, many years.

    PS: thank you for botting me, but did I just not hack your website? :-))) Ah, I guess not

    Congratulations Graham - well deserved! I suspected they would not accept my vote because I write about far more than security, and I have a very different (and in some ways flawed, admittedly) approach, but it seems it doesn’t matter anyway. Your style, approach and methodology is something that the world needs more of. Education and especially awareness are both so important to security but many people writing about these things tend to write it in a way that is more technical, more dry, and inevitably more boring and difficult to understand to those who could otherwise make the most use of the information; the fact you can explain these things and in a way that everyone can easily understand, and at the same time make it entertaining and captivating (important! it is a constantly evolving issue!) is an impressive feat alone. But it is also a great service to everyone on the Internet (and indeed in person when relevant): every host at risk (if not already compromised) is a potential risk - and a nuisance - to every other host and as such, the more awareness the better the situation.

    As I already pointed out to you, indeed the new design is quite nice.

    Congratulations again!

    Congrats G-Man (as no-one ever calls you).
    This is the culmination of everything that Des Margetson ever tried to teach you - both computers and showbiz!
