The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report features an analysis of a series of initiatives unveiled by the Biden administration to enhance supply chain and critical infrastructure security and address the cybersecurity skills gap.

In this report, you'll hear (click on player beneath image to listen):

  • ISMG’s Scott Ferguson share the details of cybersecurity initiatives unveiled this week by the White House;
  • ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz describe how a representative from the ransomware gang LockBit 2.0 curiously shared advice for would-be victims on optimal defenses;
  • ISMG's Jeremy Kirk discuss how misconfigured Microsoft Power Apps exposed sensitive data in 38 million records.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Fridays. Don't miss the Aug. 13 and Aug. 20 editions, which respectively discuss why ransomware gangs are getting bigger payoffs and disrupting the cybercrime-as-a-service model.
