Dr. McGraw, a globally-recognized authority on software security and the author of six best selling books on this topic, decided to move the monthly column from darkreading.com because of InformIT's large readership and his affiliation with Addison-Wesley Professional. His books include the just published Software Security Engineering: A Guide for Project Managers; as well as Exploiting Online Games; Software Security; Exploiting Software; and Building Secure Software.

McGraw's podcast, Silver Bullet, will also be syndicated exclusively through InformIT. He has been writing his column since October 2004, where it first appeared in Network magazine, which later became IT Architect.
