April is known for its unpredictable weather. Information security and information security news is actually a lot like the spring weather. It’s bright and refreshing when things are going well. Sometimes things are a little less than ideal— but manageable. And sometimes it storms. The frequency, type, and result of those storms often depend on where you live, and the measures you’re taking to protect yourself. Security is no different. When things are going well, it’s a beautiful thing. Every once in a while, we experience some difficulties that can be challenging, but they’re usually mild and pass quickly. Sometimes it storms. And the type of storm often depends on what type of information you have, what industry you belong to, and what you’re doing to protect yourself. Here’s a look at some of the beautiful sunny days, the gloomy overcasts, and the storms that were the information security news stories of April.
