Preview: Akamai.com's New Security Section

In recent months I've told you about the new security section we've been developing for the Akamai website. We're adding the finishing touches, and it's time for a preview. 

The new section will officially go live the week of RSA and BSidesSFlater this month.

The homepage will include a feature carousel at the top, followed by three boxes that will take visitors to additional pages for compliance -- including compliance articles and raw documentation -- and security research, including raw advisories and articles. The calendar box will take visitors to a listing of upcoming events our security advocates and execs are speaking at.
Let's start with the top of the main page:

The bottom of the main page will showcase Akamai Security podcasts, webinar replays, Akamai's security Youtube channel, and buttons to access our social media pages. We rounded out the page with a Twitter stream for all @Akamai_InfoSec posts.

I've been seeking feedback from our staff and the version you see here includes a lot of changes already made based on the response. Now I want to take the feedback request public. Have a look and email me at wbrenner@akamai.com regarding what you like or don't like, and what else you think would improve the experience.
