    Breach of the Week: Even the Feds Aren't Immune

    Breach of the Week: Even the Feds Aren't Immune

    On this week's breach, we're talking about an unnamed federal agency that was compromised by a fairly easy backdoor into the agency's network. While we can only speculate about which agency was hit or what the intent was of the bad actors, we can all agree that the feds getting whacked is not a good thing.

    Justin is back for another episode and we're again talking about a medical system that's been hit by ransomware.

Topics for Information Security Leaders

These are informative topics for people in CISO or information security leadership positions. The topics so far are based on common questions most of us have about current topics in our field. Nice short length but packed full of helpful information I can apply on the job.
