Letter from the editor: Welcome to SC Media!

News by Tony Morbin

SC Magazine has become SC Media, with SC Magazine UK becoming SC Media UK as the organisation becomes more digitally focused for a digitally focused industry.

For two decades SC magazine has been keeping information security professionals updated on the latest developments to strengthen their risk management planning, strategy execution and product/service deployments. We've achieved this by providing you with independent editorial offerings – from timely news and in-depth features and analysis, engaging and informative online and live events, objective and detailed product reviews to insightful videos.

Today we launch a new evolution of our brand that sees our name change to SC Media UK to more accurately reflect all that we do as well as the move from a print to a digital focus. We've also re-launched our website to offer various content enhancements including a fresh, more modern look overall. We are also providing topic centres that delve into specific key areas of information security. Our first two centres concentrate on Cyber-Crime and Network Security, with more to come in the near future.

Other content additions include the showcase of opinions and insight from cyber-security leaders through our Executive Insight blogs, which, along with The SC Blog, will populate our topic hubs. Additional features have been added to our long-standing Product Reviews section, with more to come for this area of the site allowing greater interactivity in the future. New quality editorial products will keep coming – from yet more informational video programmes and new live events to other inventive content types.

On the commercial side, our initial two hubs showcase a bevy of topical subcategories, such as ransomware, IoT, mobile security, cloud security and vulnerabilities that will allow for new offerings. These topics will represent the major cyber-security issues with which our audience members grapple and in which our clients specialise. We will provide contextual advertising allowing our partners to target readers and their behaviour like never before.

This truly marks an exciting time for our brand as we continue to bolster our digital business. And this is just the first step for first-party contextual offers as future phases aim to integrate these into native advertising, lead generation/digital campaigns and events.

Please also be sure to visit our SC Jobs site, which was launched this summer, as the definitive specialist careers and jobs site for information security professionals where practitioners can search for their next career opportunity or education/training course and organisations can advertise their key vacancies and courses.   

We hope you enjoy the new SC Media and we look forward to your feedback!

Very best wishes,

Tony Morbin, Editor in chief, SC Media UK
