US hybrid workers are (hopefully) closing down their laptops for the winter holidays, but before they do, they should check in with their hardworking IT security teams to make sure everything is buttoned up before heading into the new year.
That’s because sophisticated cyber attacks have been ramping up over the past year, and aren’t likely to slow down in 2022, security experts are saying.

A personal health crisis — and the search for a culturally competent provider — spurred Kimberly Wilson to launch a platform to help others.
