CERT-SE:s veckobrev v.38

Även den italienska maffian har jobbat på distans det senaste året och bytt fokus mot mer cyberorienterade aktiviteter. Om detta och mycket annat - till exempel om statusen på Sveriges it-säkerhet, karaktärsdragen hos olika typer av hackare samt en genomgång av Zero Trust - i veckans nyhetssvep. Trevlig helg önskar CERT-SE!
