Got hit by a cyberattack? Hackers will probably come after you again - within a year
Most companies that get hit by a cyberattack are likely to fall victim again – sometimes repeatedly – as many struggle to improve their cybersecurity strategy, even after incidents. According to research by cybersecurity company Cymulate, 39% of companies were hit by cybercrime over the past 12 months – and of those, two-thirds were hit more than once. Of those hit more than once, one in 10 fell victim to further cyberattacks 10 or more times.
"It wasn't one and done – in fact, if you were hit, you had much more chance of being hit a second time or multiple times," Dave Klein, director of cyber evangelism at Cymulate told ZDNet.

Or the person who tries to use an expired coupon and asks to speak to the manager when the coupon is refused.
Southern Baptist leaders will publish secret list of sexual abusers in response to scathing report
Southern Baptist leaders vowed Tuesday to publish a secret list of sexual abusers and consider revoking the retirement benefits of the lawyer who commissioned it in response to a scathing report on sexual abuse that sent shock waves through the country’s second-largest faith group. Among other explosive findings released Sunday, the Guidepost report said that longtime SBC lawyer August “Augie” Boto had sought to silence abuse survivors. Over the course of years, the report found, Boto had also shut down reforms requested by advocates - including the creation of a database of abusive SBC church ministers that survivors and experts said could be vital in stopping predators from moving undetected through the SBC.
