In checking my calendar, I noticed several IT security web seminars taking place this week. So despite some looming deadlines (and the fact that most of last week was a wash because of Labor Day on Monday, plus some magazine-wide strategy meetings that took up the rest of the week), my plan is to attend a couple of these webinars and report back on them. If you have some free time this week, think about checking out one or all of the following:
