Welcome to the new and improved Security Ninja website! I think you might have already noticed but there is something a little bit different about the Security Ninja website, you certainly don’t need to be a ninja to spot it!
I’m very happy to say that the Security Ninja website is now a Realex Payments website and we’ll continue to deliver the technical content you are used to seeing here. Security is one of the Realex Payments values and we hope to help others realise the value of security to our organisation through the Security Ninja site.
As I said above the content will continue to be both technical but easy to understand because that is what has built the following we already have. I feel all of the things that will change are all positive things including the new secure development and governance & compliance sections of the site. These sections along with the media section should mean that there is no more trawling through blog posts to find a presentation I gave a year ago! Above all the best change will be time, even if I had obtained a flux capacitor I was starting to run out of “spare” time to contribute the highly technical content that people want to see.
So what can you expect to see over the next few months? Well not all sections of the site are fully live yet, we have some exciting changes coming soon to the media section as well as more content to add as we present at more conferences, write more articles etc. The media section will contain a range of different media types from powerpoint presentations, whitepapers, mp3′s of presentations and videos where available.
The Secure Development section of the website will provide a one stop shop for your secure development guidance requirements. We currently have information detailing the The Principles of Secure Development but we will be adding extra content based on these principles such as application security code review checklists and report templates.
Our Governance & Compliance section will help you understand standards such as PCI DSS and ISO 27001/27002 as well as guidance on how to implement systems and services within your own environments to gain (and maintain!) compliance with these standards.
All of the content on the website is free to access and isn’t restricted at all so if you like what you see please feel free to spread the word about Security Ninja on your own blogs, Twitter and of course word of mouth
