It is hard to believe, but today is issue #500 in my (probably inaccurate) accounting of this newsletter. I began this effort in mid-June 2016. My first issue had links to stories about spear phishing dissidents by Citizen Lab, pre-installed OEM malware on numerous Windows PCs, the perils of password reuse and hacking connected cars. Sometimes the past is always present with us.
I was one of the first editors hired by Inside -- now we have dozens of newsletters and if you haven’t looked at our offerings you might want to browse over to Inside.com and see if a couple of them resonate with you -- most of them are not about tech. One of them you should examine is Inside CTO. It is being curated by my well-known colleague Violet Blue and is off to a good start.
I want to thank Endgame for their sponsorship of this newsletter. This month I highlight this post on their blog that talks about hiring the best security personnel. One challenge is being able to understand your culture and not just hire someone, but keep them motivated and how they can continue to learn and meet new challenges. This is an important point that deserves mention, and the post covers some other success factors they have learned.
