Most Popular Cybersecurity Blog Posts from 2018

What happened in cybersecurity last year?

There are many ways to answer that question, but most cyber discussions about 2018 quickly get complex.

From GDPR to critical infrastructure attacks to government policy changes to data breaches (big and small) to cyberthreats seen (new and old) to staff turnover, simple explanations don’t do justice to our global security challenges. Quick stories or fun cyber analogies can help, but most inquiring minds want more.

So without going down an infinite number of cybersecurity rabbit holes, I know of no better way to summarize cybersecurity or critical infrastructure developments each year (in under 1,300 words) than to take a quantitative look at readership numbers — with a spice of qualitative analysis (and personal commentary) thrown in annually about various technology and security topics.

Tip: Use the headlines and blog summaries below to help navigate through the cyberfog, and dive in deeper when intrigued.
