  • Key takeaways from an interview with former DHS official Adam Isles on President Biden's recently released executive order, including the significance of software security standards and the push for a software bill of materials, or SBOM, for all software that gets sold;
  • A U.S. jury finding Russian national Aleksandr Zhukov - a self-professed "king of fraud" - guilty of perpetrating the $7 million "Methbot" digital advertising scam.
