Looking for a good IT Security Magazine

I am starting to learn more in the security area of IT and I am looking for a good IT security magazine that keeps me up to date with the latest technology, threats, tips, what is hot right now and etc.  Please let me know what you are reading, what works for you and why you like it.   Thanks in advance.

A good start is the ISSA. Check them out, become a memebr, and then start receiving their magazine.
Infoworld is a very good magazine. Less adv, more info and keep you up to date. What yo need to know is there, http://www.infoworld.com/

Infoworld is a weekly information technology magazine. It is amount the top 100 magazines. It has free subscription.

It covers more info security and other IT technologies than PCworld. When you go to www.pcworld.com, the first thing you see is an adv, and everything inside is all related to adv.

I'm really not into infoworld or any magazine about I.T. in general.  I think they are out of date.  For current news I have a RSS reader that checks about 50 sites for me.

Here's a few:
Federal Computer Week
CSO Online (I only read this online as I'm not a CSO or a security manager)
http://isc.sans.org - current attacks, vulnerabilities

The mag is  awarded with best security mag

and smartcomputing


I find these useful -

http://www.securityfocus.com/ - good general overview

as mentioned by ded9 scmagazine is quite good, they also have a uk version (replace /us with /uk in the url) which has slightly different content - so may be more relevant depending on your location

http://www.zone-h.org - is an interesting site, with a more hacker type stance.

Depending on the technologies you use vendor sites can also be a good source of information - e.g.
http://www.microsoft.com/security/default.mspx - actually links to quite a lot of useful info - most vendors have security sections on their sites these days.

For general security news -
http://www.theregister.co.uk/security (or .com)

For general IT news including sec issues -

are quite good.

You may also find joining some mailing lists / rss feeds useful - e.g. bugtrack, security-basics etc.  Links to many of these can be found on security focus (url already in this post) - just click on the mailing lists link on the home page and then join any lists that look relevant.
