This month we hit a tragic milestone in cybersecurity. A patient at Düsseldorf University Hospital died as a result of a ransomware attack. Though it did hit the news, I don't think the magnitude of this event is coming across or even truly understand. What can we do to make sure that this is the only time that this happens? Unfortunately, I think this is part of our reality now. Also the U.S Department of Homeland Security (DHS) deployed some very invasive technology during the Portland protests and riots. This is very dangerous and should be illegal to use against protesters. For those who are rioting... well there may be some legal gray areas there.
