In the latest weekly update, four Information Security Media Group editors discuss important cybersecurity issues, including how Russia's cyber and kinetic wars in Ukraine have changed the cybersecurity landscape, what recent layoffs at cybersecurity firms mean for the industry and how cybercriminals are taking a page out of the white hat hacker's playbook.

The editors - Anna Delaney, director, productions; Tom Field, senior vice president, editorial; Michael Novinson, managing editor, business; and Tony Morbin, executive news editor, EU - discuss:

  • A look at the biggest story of the year so far - the Russia-Ukraine war - and trends to watch in the second half of 2022;
  • How threat detection firm IronNet has laid off 17% of its staff 10 months after going public;
  • How the ransomware-as-a-service gang LockBit is taking a page out of the white hat hacker's playbook to offer a bug bounty program for researchers willing to aid in cybercriminality.

The ISMG Editors' Panel runs weekly. Don't miss our previous installments, including the June 3 edition discussing whether we are closing in on a U.S. federal privacy law and the June 24 edition discussing the settlement in the Desjardins Group data breach lawsuit.
