Say goodbye to the 2010s by curling up and binging on this roundup of our top-read stories, most-watched webcasts, and editors’ picks.

It’s a long-standing tradition to look back on the year as it gets ready to end. What were the moments that inspired us? What did we accomplish? And just as important, where did we fail and learn? As 2019 comes to a close, we’re not only ending a year—we’re ending a decade. We look back and see not just milestones, but seasons of transformation.

Red Canary has changed and evolved immensely since it was founded in 2013. Our business has grown and so have we. Our security team grew from a small Security Operations Center with talented analysts, to a world-class Cyber Incident Response Team (CIRT) comprised of detection engineers, incident handlers, and researchers. The Red Canary blog evolved from a grassroots assembly of infrequent submissions and just a few dozen subscribers, to a weekly publication complete with editors, writers, regular contributors, and thousands of readers across the security community.

This is a celebration of the journey we’ve taken together. To the readers and contributors who make our work possible, thank you. We hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have.

One of the team's first "big" webcasts drew a whopping 38 attendees and nearly ran off course when panelist Joe Moles had to rush to the hospital midway through for a family emergency. The crisis was averted, and Joe finished the webinar from his firetruck. Memories aside, the timeless content is full of great tips for incident responders.
