Message from the Publisher

In October we will contact you with offers to help expand access to the Nilson
Report across your business. Why? Two very good reasons: The first is that our
data is often quoted across companies by marketing, product, security and
research departments alike. The second is that many of our subscribers found
us by way of a referral from one of their colleagues. Please take a moment to
consider colleagues who would benefit from the Nilson Report and let us know
how to connect with them.
