Spring Trends in Cybersecurity, IT, and Internet Governance

In May 2021...

  • The ICANN Domain Name System Symposium (IDS), ICANN and GDD's annual joint meeting on DNS security, will take place from May 25 to 27. The symposium will focus on risk tradeoffs, how the threat landscape has evolved, measurements, and mitigation measures.
  • Darkside carried out a ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline, prompting fears over East Coast gas shortages, which led to gas hoarding and panic buying in the South. The attack also highlighted a vulnerability in the country's cyberinfrastructure, leading President Joe Biden to issue an executive order on strengthening Cybersecurity in the US. Ultimately, Colonial Pipeline paid nearly $5 million to Darkside to restore its disabled computer network.
  • The IP management technology provider Anaqua announced its acquisition of SeeUnity, which provides API-related software.[2]
