About Us

If you're involved in business IT, you're involved in IT security.

Security touches every aspect of business IT, from the network perimeter to devices in the hands of employees and partners; from the physical access tied to directory identities to the applications customers use to buy your goods and services. What does it mean to you?

Security is too important to leave to the security "experts."

Yes, security specialists are critical, but in today's world of IT everyone needs to know about security, from vulnerability and threat to defense and remediation. And that's why Security Now exists. Our community brings security experts together with the IT professionals who get things done at organizations around the world. Whether your job is part of development, operations, networking, or cloud management, you need to know what the latest news means, why it matters to you and your organization, and -- most important -- what to do about it.

Security has gone from the "department of 'no'" to a critical piece of the productivity and user experience puzzles for the enterprise. How do you say "yes" while you keep the data and infrastructure safe? How do you choose a partner to help your organization stay secure without blowing up the IT budget? Is every attack an attack on everyone -- and when is it OK to just take a deep breath and not panic?

Whether you're the person putting hands on a keyboard to configure servers or someone who has to approve spending on hardware and software, you need to know how security has an impact on you and your organization. Security Now brings you security news in language that you can understand, supported by a community of security experts, IT practitioners, and business professionals who can share their experience and expertise to give context and real-world meaning to the words.

When you spend time with Security Now, you're spending time within a community that will help you make your organization more secure while keeping it responsive, nimble, and financially responsible. Those are qualities everyone in IT can respond to -- especially now that everyone in IT is in IT security.
