Huzzah! I may treat myself to another jelly baby.
I'm delighted to announce that this website has once again been recognised at the RSA Security Blogger Awards.
The awards were announced last night in San Francisco, at an after-conference party where the world's elite security bloggers met amid slices of pizza in nervous anticipation.
Sadly I couldn't be there this year to collect in person the award for "Most Entertaining Security blog" (I would probably have been a gibbering wreck anyway...), but I discovered via Twitter that I had won a nice piece of polished glass.

"Security blog" and "Entertaining" - not words that you naturally associate with each other.
So, my sincere thanks to everyone who voted, for the great team who contribute articles to the site, the sponsors who pay the web-hosting bills, and - most of all - you for reading the articles, and creating a great community where we can enjoy (ahem...) lively discussions.
It's a real privilege being able to write independently about what is going on in the world of computer security, and hopefully making the sometimes gloomy news a little less bleak.
In the coming year - with help from a great team of guest contributors - I hope to post even more articles offering helpful advice and plain-speaking opinion on how we can better protect ourselves online, make more videos and perhaps find better ways to help you share your wisdom with others too.
Thanks for sticking around.
