The cyber kill chain illustrates the structure of a successful cyber attack. It is effectively the hacker’s process from beginning to end, from scoping a target (reconnaissance) all the way to achieving their objective, whether that’s data theft or dropping and executing malware. When approaching your cyber security strategy, you should align your defences to the cyber kill chain. Like Batman becoming fear, to defeat the hacker, you must become a hacker.

I have no idea what this is, but I imagine it’s significantly less interesting than the Ryuk ransomware campaign that’s currently hitting businesses right across the world.

Working from home used to mean an unofficial day off, but it’s becoming an increasingly common way for people to – well, actually work. For these people, pitching up at a coffee shop is not unusual. Lots of people do it. They're no longer the reserve for would-be screenwriters. There are numerous benefits, such as easy access to overpriced coffees and the option to be sociable but with no obligation to actually be so.

Magic seems to be very popular at the moment. Just look at last week’s Britain’s Got Talent, which featured an improbable number of magicians in its line-up. These included ‘X’, the masked magician who was wearing something that looked suspiciously like an anonymous mask and managed to supposedly hack Instagram. A lot of cyber security technology seems to work like magic, so is this a coincidence? Is ‘X’ a reformed hacker turned stage magician? Spoiler alert: no.
