Headline Privacy & IT Security Compliance News

Professionals within the cybersecurity industry are growing tired, reports Deep Instinct in their recent annual survey. The report refers to this stress-related phenomenon as "The Great Cybersecurity Resignation." Workers are reporting feeling overwhelmed and stressed, with ransomware being reported as the number one contributor to anxiety in the workplace.

Networking, cloud, and security solution company, Cisco, is recommending owners of their end-of-life Small Business RV routers upgrade to the latest model after informing the public about a vulnerability in a remote code execution that they refuse to patch. The vulnerability is said to impact four Small Business RV Series models. Warning their customers, Cisco advised administrators last year that they should upgrade to a newer model after disclosing that they would not fix a critical vulnerability in their Universal Plug-and-Play (UPnP) service.
