Finally
It's about time more officials in positions of power learned about real digital security. The people who know this the most aren't the suited IT technicians in federal organisations, it's those in the trenches right now trying to break things. Those guys know more about cracking open systems than anyone so it's them who the authorities should be listening to.

I'm really pleased to see they're starting to do that.

Re: Finally
Agreed, Whoopty... it's all mostly encouraging. The culture of the federal government, not to mention the military, change very slowly. But in the case of "cyber" security, they move slowly at their peril -- and ours. And it's pretty clear that most of the parties involved understand that.

Desperate times?
Though i applaud the effort and new discussion, it also makes me think that such an initiative from the government feels like desperate measures in a cyber reality where hackers are in control.  We surely can only hope the white hats will overpower the black ones.

Re: Desperate times?
If history is any guide, the color of the hat won't determine who wins the cyber security war. The constant, ongoing tit-for-tat, offensive/counter-offensive dynamic that's marked whitehat-blackhat interactions for years shows no signs of going away any time soon.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
