Greetings all,

Enjoy the site... Googled for a solution saw a link to the site. Got my answer and joined. I am a U.S. Citizen working in Germany. Do Information Assurance/Security Policy/Network Security. Would love to see a Forum under Security for IA/Security Policy.

Thanks to all the mod's as they appear to be ontop of all the forums. This is one of the better sites I have come across.

Scarlett,

I do a lot of work writing Security Policy from purchasing to implementing systems. We do vulnerability testing on new systems that must be accredited before going on the network. We evaluate software, processes for media control, resource protection, PKI standards and encryptions types, vaulting - backups, contingency planning, patch management, physical planning of secure computing facilities, Information Assurance Education and more.
Your security section is limited to virus alerts, AV software, Firewalls, Patches and analysis. The Security field has blossomed as is evident by the number of individuals seeking their CISSP (like me) and other security certifications. The CISSP alone covers many domains of security that aren't touched in your Security section. I think you could attract alot more individuals if you expand your section. I browse a ton of security sites (SecurityFocus.com, techrepublic.com, informationshield.com, centerforsecuritypolicy.org).
The security personnel are always looking for the newest asset tracking software, policies, certification evaluations - benefits, and training tools. This could be a place for security types to hang out and keep others aware of the latest events, conferences, jobs and organizations. BleepingComputer is a great Forum with good number of users. The mods are ontop of things and the site is not one that has degraded to whine sessions or comparing whose rig is better.
I plan on frequenting this site more and will continue to do so even if the site does not add other discussion forums. Just a newbie to the site making observations.

Thanks for following up on this!

Scarlett,

Thanks for the update. It was just a suggestion. If the forum gods/mods want to do it great - if not I at least know you all take this seriously enough to look at user's suggestions.
