Strange
Somewhat disappointing as it appears Microsoft is asking for a government subsidy in effect to make up for deficiencies in their software. Anyone who has worked with government knows they are always slow to respond and build new solutions. The governments only role, and I cringe to say it, is to legislate what companies must do to protect their customers. The proof is out there that companies have been failing at this for some time. This is why much of the legislation comes about. There is little or no legislation related to the makers of operating systems and software. Why not vet code better especially when libraries are used by thousands of applications? The volume of Microsoft patches in the past two years is alarming, we should be better at testing and vetting code for problems. My 2 cents worth.

Brad Smith on Cybersecurity
I hope Brad reads this response. I've writtne to him twice with researched ideas on tackling this issue to no avail. It reminds me of Mark Twain's 'Everybody is talking about the weather, nobody is doing anyhting about it'.

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.
