  • Why the U.S. government and industry authorities are warning the healthcare sector of a surge in distributed denial-of-service attacks against hospitals and other medical entities instigated by Russian nuisance hacking group KillNet;
  • Highlights from an interview with James Lee of the Identity Theft Resource Center about findings from its 2022 Annual Data Breach Report, which reveals a recent lack of transparency and failure to share important details in breach notices.
