We are trying out a new format for the newsletter today, let me know what you think about it. We highlight a new report showing healthcare-related attacks are on the rise. That is why it always nice when we can share good news, such as this one medical firm who was able to restore its data from backups to fight off a ransomware attack. As I am writing this, I have to take my computer into the shop because of a hard drive failure. I hope to have good news on my own situation tomorrow.
This newsletter is written and curated by David Strom. I live in St. Louis MO and have covered the infosec industry for decades. I also ran editorial operations for various B2B IT publications including Network Computing (USA), Tom’s Hardware and ReadWrite.com’s business websites. You can find me at @dstrom or my personal site.
Finally, we note our editing team: Lon Harris (editor-in-chief at Inside.com, game-master at Screen Junkies), Krystle Vermes (Breaking news editor at Inside, B2B marketing news reporter, host of the "All Day Paranormal" podcast), and Susmita Baral (editor at Inside, recent bylines in NatGeo, Teen Vogue, and Quartz.
