Four New Year Cyber Security Resolutions
Another year is upon us in the world of cyber-security, and few things are certain. Commentators are always prone to hyperbole: I remember in late 2017 reading claims that, “2017 was the year cyber nukes were dropped in the ocean, in 2018 they will hit land”.

It’s been a busy year on the Digital Shadows blog, with almost 150 blogs published since January 1.

By looking at details revealed ...
