Dr.InfoSec featured on BusinessWeek Front Page

Update on 11/25/2008: still showing up on BusinessWeek's Technology page.

Earlier this month, Douglas MacMillan wrote a story for BusinessWeek about scammers and the dangers to your online identity. The article featured Shawn Moyer and Nathan Hamiel and their successful scam: convincing fellow LinkedIn users (many of which are security professionals themselves) that they were the real Marcus Ranum (CSO of Tenable Network Security).

By chance, I happen to see the article on Twitter and leave a comment. The comment got picked up and I was asked by BW to provide a photo and give my blessings to be featured on the front page.

Many thanks to Stiennon's Twitts, the Security Bloggers Network and the Security Twits group for all of the positive attention.
