The limits of post-breach services for customers

When companies experience major data breaches, they often offer free credit monitoring and identity protection services to customers whose information is suddenly at risk.

European police hope Google ads will steer teenagers away from a life of hacking

European law enforcement officials are aiming to identify young people deemed at risk of committing crimes, and provide a metaphorical tap on the shoulder. The program, called the Cyber Offender Prevention Squad, will target teenagers who exhibit behaviors that they may be flirting with the idea of criminal hacking with online warnings.

CISA makes .gov domains available for free

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said Tuesday it will drop all registration fees for the .gov top-level domain through the end of the current fiscal year. The announcement came as the agency took over management of the TLD from the General Services Administration. With the fee waiver, state and local governments will not have to pay the $400 the federal government typically charges for a .gov domain, which had long been considered a roadblock for small organizations. The waiver will be made available to all new .gov registrants, as well as agencies that are renewing their sites. Ben Freed has the story at StateScoop.
