ITSPmagazine is a free online publication that focuses on information technology, cybersecurity, data privacy, the InfoSec community and the influence that all this has on our everyday lives – as businesses, individuals and the society in which we live.

After almost three years, we are pleased and honored to know that the conversations we are having and the content we are creating have become relevant for the cybersecurity community, for businesses of all sizes, for individuals, and for our society as a whole.

We are galvanized by the past and motivated more than ever to start a new year with all of you.

We will do our best to keep producing quality content and make a difference, and we have no doubt that with your support we will.

We raise a glass to toast to the cybersecurity community and to all of you!

Happy New Year!

Selena, Sean, and Marco.

As usual, stay tuned, enjoy all this week's content, share it, and be healthy, happy, and merry!
