Extra, Extra: What's New With Dark Reading News & Analysis

How to share your opinion, news tips, and ideas.

By now, you're probably getting more familiar with the look and feel of the newly relaunched Dark Reading and the expanded features, content, and security community we're now offering.

As you can see, what has not changed is our dedication to producing the quality news coverage and in-depth analysis of security incidents, events, threats, technologies, and trends that you have enjoyed and have come to expect from Dark Reading over the past eight years. We'll still deliver the provocative, insightful, and intelligent analysis of the news you don't get anywhere else -- but even  better.

The big difference is now you will have a voice on the site, to comment on our news articles, communicate with other readers, or set up your own discussion boards that go beyond the 140-character limit of a Twitter chat. The commenting system is much easier to use (yes, it still requires site registration) and provides you the opportunity to share your opinions with us as well as your colleagues in the security community.

We welcome and encourage your participation in our news and analysis coverage as well. Post your opinion about an article or about a breaking news story, or start a discussion board about a security topic that's near and dear to you (it doesn't even have to be about an article or blog posted on the site). You can also submit news tips or ideas on what you'd like to see us cover or explore, either via editors@darkreading.com, or if you prefer, directly to Editor in Chief Tim Wilson, timothy.wilson@ubm.com, or Senior Editor Kelly Jackson Higgins, kelly.jackson.higgins@ubm.com, and we'll give it a look.

We have opened up our Commentary section to more community input, so feel free to shoot us a pitch for a blog you'd like to write, in addition to commenting. Our community editor Marilyn Cohodas, marilyn.cohodas@ubm.com, is spearheading blogs and other community features for us. She explains more about this here.

Dark Reading News Analysis and Commentary pieces are all now conveniently located in one column on the far-left of the homepage, but clearly marked as News, Quick Hits (short news items), and Commentary (blogs) so you know exactly what you're getting when you click on an article.

Our Best of the Web section, as always, brings you some of the hottest news reported by other news organizations and industry sources.

And a note to PR folks and vendors: Dark Reading posts press releases on new products and other vendor news in our Products & Releases section, where our readers can find in one searchable location everything from the smallest startups to the biggest security vendor news. Because we're paranoid security journos who don't like clicking on links or attachments, we prefer receiving press releases embedded in emails to us at editors@darkreading.

So don't just read Dark Reading's news and analysis: Take a more active role in it. Your insight on the latest in security could help shape a future article, or spur a spirited and helpful discussion with your peers.

Your points are well-taken, @theb0x. We have just moved to our new platform, so things are still settling in. We are planning improvements in both functionality and security, so stay tuned.

What's New With Dark Reading
With all this talk about security.. Why is there not a secure SSL/TLS login to your website? Everyone's credentials are submitted in plain text. I sure hope no one uses the same password for their account as they do for online banking.
