journalIt’s April, and what does that mean? It’s time for ISSA’s 2009 PCI issue! The feature article for that issue, is The Art of the Compensating Control. You can download this version from the website, even if you are not a member, at http://www.issa.org/Members/Journal.html for the rest of the month. If you are reading this after April 2009 and want a copy, let me know.

You readers of the blog are going to get a special treat! The original article was much more casual and entertaining than what we ended up publishing in the Journal. Thom reviewed the first final draft of the article and said that it was much too casual. He was absolutely right. I can’t tell you what a joy it is to have a fantastic editor working on your behalf to make sure the best possible quality product is published.

Wait, something’s missing. I said you are in for a special treat and all I did was gush over my editor… hrm… what was that treat….

OH YES! I will be posting the original, un-cut, un-censored article RIGHT HERE on the blog over the next few weeks! The original article will be broken into six individual posts that will be put on this blog every Monday and Wednesday for the next three weeks starting on April 6. By the end, I’ll have a link to both versions of the article for your downloading pleasure!

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
