In the latest weekly update, four editors at Information Security Media Group discuss important cybersecurity and privacy issues, including how cyber risk is becoming more closely tied to the economic health of nations, why a rural U.S. healthcare provider is closing due in part to ransomware attack woes, and why some cybersecurity companies have laid off staff this month.

The panelists - Anna Delaney, director, productions; Tony Morbin, executive news editor; Michael Novinson, managing editor, ISMG business; and Marianne Kolbasuk McGee, executive editor, HealthcareInfoSecurity - discuss:

  • Why cybersecurity is increasingly moving from being a tech-centric profession to a risk-centric one and how to measure cyber risk;
  • Why a rural Illinois medical system will shut down partially due to fallout from a 2021 ransomware incident, which is part of a wave of attacks exacting high costs from the healthcare industry;
  • Why cybersecurity firms Dragos and Sumo Logic have joined a slew of companies in laying off employees due to slowdowns in revenue growth.
