Congrats to all who've registered for the Security 5K walk/run at this year's ISC West

I just got an email from Mission 500 Volunteer and Advisory Council member George Fletcher. I wasn't the only one. Everyone who has registered for the upcoming 2nd annual Security 5K road race, which is happening at this year's ISC West in Vegas, got the email, I assume. It's nice to see the industry pulling together for a good cause and raising some money for the needy.

I think this year's race will be even better than the inaugural installment last year. That first race raised around $30k. Let's hope we do equally well this year.

Though I haven't been promoting this fact, I feel I should perhaps mention it now. Following in the footsteps of SSN editors before me, I'll be singing the National Anthem before the race along with my colleague, SSN publisher's assistant Cath Dagget. I'm not promosing an overwhelming emotional response to our well-rehearsed, on-key, on-target, patriotic portrayal, but I think we'll at least get the words right. I hope.

Good luck to everyone who registered to walk or run in the race. Let's do some good and have a great ISC West!

Here's the email from George Fletcher. Thanks for the props, George!
