Other Than Ipvm...Security Publications

Other than IPVM, what if any Security Publications should I take the time to read/stay away from.

I work for a company that mostly does Intrusion and Fire, but we are starting to do more Access and Video. I am new to working in the industry full time and just want to learn as much as I can about what’s going on in the world.

You're a young guy. Just follow LinkedIn and Twitter. Yes, most of them are not good, but it still makes you aware of what others are seeing.

Of the security tech pubs, I've found SDM to have the most original content (especially on intrusion) and Security Products the least (manufacturer submitted puff pieces). SSN does report on 'news' but it's usually weird minor things like which Kentucky alarm dealer is expanding.

We monitor the trade pubs with our spider, picking up and linking to articles of broader interest.
