While the news rooms at media outlets around the country unfortunately continue to experience painful downsizing, cybersecurity coverage remains a top priority for publications of all types, particularly in the wake of continued large-scale breaches affecting organizations such as Macy’s and Capital One. As cybersecurity continues to evolve to protect businesses and individuals from the constantly-shifting threat landscape, it is quite conceivable that more media outlets will continue to expand their coverage of this area and invest more in editorial expansion. Against that backdrop, here is a snapshot of several cybersecurity reporter and editors moves during the past few months:
This venerable global news wire has brought in Raphael Satter to cover worldwide cybersecurity and tech policy. Since his start in September, Satter has covered ransomware in Mexico and Iranian hacking on President Trump’s re-election campaign
