In the latest weekly update, four editors from the Information Security Media Group discuss important cybersecurity issues, including how Russia’s cyber and kinetic wars in Ukraine have changed the cybersecurity landscape, what Recent layoffs at cybersecurity companies mean for the industry and how cybercriminals are taking a page out of the white hat hacker’s playbook.

The Editors – Anna Delaney, director, productions; Tom Field, senior vice president, editorial; Michael Novinson, editor, business; and Tony Morbin, Executive Editor, EU – discuss:

  • A look at the biggest story of the year so far – the Russian-Ukrainian war – and trends to watch in the second half of 2022;

  • How does the threat detection business IronNet laid off 17% of its staff 10 months after its IPO;

  • How the Ransomware-as-a-Service Gang LockBit is taking a page out of the hacker’s playbook to offer a bug bounty program to researchers willing to help with cybercrime.

The ISMG editors panel works every week. Don’t miss our previous installments, including the June 3 edition discussing whether we are getting closer to a US federal privacy law and the June 24 edition dealing with the settlement of Desjardins Group’s data breach lawsuit.
