Richard Stiennon: Getting to Know the IT Security Industry

I founded IT-Harvest in 2006 to cover the cybersecurity industry. Writing and publishing is a critical part of being an independent analyst, so that was the first thing I concentrated on, first for my blog, ThreatChaos, which I had started while at Webroot, then ZDNET, where they paid a penny per page view. Finally, Andy Greenberg at Forbes reached out and asked me to become a contributor.
