The month of March was another exciting one in the world of cyber security.

Global conversation appeared to coalesce even further around the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This means that multinational organizations handling EU citizen data will be subject to the mandate – and it is directly binding.


What’s more, outside the realm of governance, risk management and compliance (GRC), cyber security practitioners appear to have chiseled away at the “artificial intelligence (AI) in cyber debate.” What benefits does AI have for the enterprise? Is AI in security more advanced than chat-bots that can handle rather pedestrian duties?

The Cyber Security Hub also hosted an informative Q&A regarding the expansion of cloud computing and its place in the enterprise. Additional coverage included analysis of boardroom activity in the cyber realm, as well as weekly “Task Force 7 Radio” recaps which featured everything from FBI cyber “stings” to the market trajectory for cryptocurrency.

Of course, March, like most months, was also filled with cyber-attacks. The Cyber Security Hub’s “Incident of the Week” column captured much of this chaos. March saw morphing malware strains, historic DDoS attacks and a potential mega-breach at a travel fare aggregator.

What follows is an in-depth look at the month of March and the cyber security headlines that stole the show. Click on each headline to read the full story.
