Spring Trends in Cybersecurity, IT, and Internet Governance

In late spring 2021...

  • The ICANN Domain Name System Symposium (IDS), ICANN and GDD's annual joint meeting on DNS security, took place from May 25 to 27. The symposium focused 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. Colonial Pipeline paid nearly $5 million to Darkside to restore its disabled computer network, of which the U.S. Department of Justice was able to trace and seize 63.7 Bitcoins (US$2.3 million as of 06/07/2021).[1]
  • The IP management technology provider Anaqua announced its acquisition of SeeUnity, which provides API-related software.[3]
