Dear Reader,

In the US, the National Cybersecurity Awareness Month comes to an end - and it's Halloween today. While we certainly don't want to scare you, there are some interesting articles in this newsletter which show with different arguments, that cybersecurity needs to be taken more seriously. 

There seems to be a shift in the cybersecurity industry towards a more pro-active approach, for example by focusing on secure development in early stages.

Finally, some announcements of what you can expect here on Cybersecurity Magazine: We will have an interview with the CEO of Niksun, Dr. Parag Pruthi coming up, of which you can read the first snippet here.  

Also, our next focus topic will be the security of the Internet of Things (IoT), which will be covered in different articles and interviews over the next months. If you know someone who is interested, make sure they sign up to this newsletter, just as you did. 

In the meantime, have fun reading our latest selections of articles from around the web.
