ARLINGTON, VA: Buoyed by the booming domestic security sector, Homeland Defense Journal (HDJ) has expanded from an online newsletter into a monthly print publication and a website with breaking news.
Editor David Silverberg bills HDJ as the only publication dedicated to comprehensive reporting on homeland defense issues, from funding to politics.
"People at all levels are being tasked with homeland security responsibilities," Silverberg said. "We don't even have a grasp of how big the community is."
He said HDJ, still available in PDF format, was being downloaded more than 50,000 times a month. That, along with HDJ's solutions-oriented approach, makes Silverberg optimistic.
"General reporting tends to be alarmist - what bridge isn't being guarded and the like," he said. "Our audience knows that, and tries to find solutions."
