Welcome to another edition of the newsletter!

In other news, health insurer Premera Blue Cross said on Tuesday it was a victim of a cyberattack that may have exposed medical data and financial information of 11 million customers, and a report showing how 71 percent of organizations were successfully attacked in 2014.
