The temperature has dipped throughout the Northern Hemisphere and days are beginning to lengthen. Jack Frost is still nipping at your nose, but things are looking up.
It must be time to start preparing for RSA Conference 2013!
Actually, if truth be told, preparing for RSA starts about mid-year when they require any proposals to speak be submitted.
This ensures only the most current topics are accepted for the main conference eight months later.
OK, enough of that. The reason I am writing this is that we need *your* help.
All year long we strive to provide you the most timely, well researched and practical security advice and news.
What you can do for us is help us get nominated for the 2013 SBN Social Security Blogger Awards.
The initial voting for who should be on the ballot is open to the public and Naked Security is nominated in two categories (sort of).
First we are in the running for the Best Corporate Security Blog, which we were privileged to have won in 2012.
Secondly, for the first time, the Sophos Security Chet Chat is up for nomination as the Best Security Podcast.
If you like Naked Security or enjoy listening to the Chet Chat, why not support us by casting a vote in our direction?
After the nominees are chosen there will be a vote by security professionals to select the winners. Wish us luck!

Naked Security is an invaluable read that helps me stay on top of the latest IT Security news. Insightful, current, trending …they are the leaders. Keep up the great work!
You write that the temperature has dipped throughout the northern hemisphere.
Yes, it happens in most of the northern hemisphere every winter, and there is no evidence that it is any cooler than usual for the time of year. I hope you are not implying that climate change a.k.a. global warming has come to an end.
On the contrary, in the summer of 2012 more than three-quarters of land areas north of the Tropic of Cancer had average temperatures at least 1°C above normal. Temperatures 2 to 4°C above normal were widespread through large parts of North America, and in a band stretching from the Balkans through southern European Russia into western and central Siberia.
NakedSecurity and ChetChat both earned my votes.
