The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Tuesdays and Fridays. Check out our Feb. 10 and Feb. 14 reports, which respectively analyze the challenges law enforcement faces in using lawful hacking as an alternative way to collect evidence when cracking an encrypted device is not an option and how understanding epidemiology, immunology and genetic research processes can help developers create methods to secure information systems.
The next ISMG Security Report will be posted on Tuesday, Feb. 21.
