  • ISMG Security and Technology Editor Jeremy Kirk evaluate endpoint detection and response products;
  • Joan Goodchild, who as ISMG's multimedia content director oversees CareersInfoSecurity, provide tips to recruit information security talent enterprises need, now; and
  • About how automakers are tackling vehicular data privacy.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Tuesdays and Fridays. Check out our Aug. 22 and Aug. 25 editions, which respectively include an analysis by information security guru Ron Ross on forthcoming changes to the National Institute of Standards and Technology's catalog of IT security and privacy controls and an evaluation of Donald Trump's approach to cybersecurity during the first seven months of his administration.
