True to form, cyber security continues its domination of technology and mainstream news. Ransomware continues to strike, using different techniques such as Locky’s recent spread through social media, or attacking targets like the San Francisco Municipal Transport Agency.

Password reuse attacks continue to grow. From Deliveroo’s attack a couple of weeks ago, to the UK’s National Lottery this week.
