In our ongoing quest for world domination, we are excited to announce our formal partnership with our friends over at Liquidmatrix.

Beginning immediately Dave Lewis (@gattaca) and James Arlen (@myrcurial) are joining the staff as Contributing Analysts. Dave and James will be contributing to the Securosis blog and taking part in some of our research and analysis projects. If you want to ask them questions or just say “Hi,” aside from their normal emails you can now reach them at dlewis and jarlen at

Within the next few days we will also start providing the Liquidmatrix Security Briefing through the Securosis RSS feed and email distribution list (for those of you on our Daily Digest list). We will just be providing the Briefing – Dave, James, and their other contributors will continue to blog on other issues at [the Liquidmatrix site( But you’ll also start seeing new content from them here at Securosis as they participate in our research projects.

We’re biased but we think this is a great partnership. Aside from gaining two more really smart guys with a lot of security experience, this also increases our ability to keep all of you up to date on the latest security news. I’d call it a “win-win”, but I think they’ll figure out soon enough that Securosis is the one gaining the most here. (Don’t worry, per SOP we locked them into oppressive ironclad contracts).

Dave and James now join David Mortman and Gunnar Peterson in our Contributing Analyst program. Which means Mike, Adrian, and I are officially outnumbered and a bit nervous.
