  • Key takeaways from an interview with cybersecurity expert Tom Kellermann, head of cybersecurity strategy at VMware Carbon Black, on incident response, especially in the wake of President Joe Biden warning that cyber incidents that target a major power could well provoke a kinetic response;
  • Healthcare CISOs' top cybersecurity takeaways from the annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society conference running this week, touching on ransomware, resiliency, and supply chain and IoT/OT security;
  • Fresh guidance on resiliency from the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology that also integrates with the MITRE ATT&CK framework, which documents attackers' tactics and techniques based on real-world observations.

The ISMG Editors' Panel runs on Fridays. Don't miss our previous installments, including the Aug. 6 and July 30 editions, which respectively discuss U.S. government cybersecurity challenges and updates on ransomware attacks.
