Today the Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) released the GCA Cybersecurity Toolkit for Journalists at the 2020 Online News Association conference. The toolkit is a free, operational resource aimed at helping journalists, watchdogs, and small newsrooms shore-up their cybersecurity practices. Journalists around the world have long been targets of cyber attacks, whether reporting on crime, politics, or simply being a target for the spread of disinformation. Recent examples include an Angolan journalist reporting on the embezzlement of public funds and two Turkish journalists whose accounts and devices were compromised after reporting on the death of Turkish soldiers in Libya. In order to provide some practical resources to manage these risks, GCA assembled a set of tools that journalists can use to shore up their cyber defenses, protect their devices and data, and help safeguard their online presence.

PDI | August 18, 2021
Professional Datasolutions, Inc. (PDI), a global provider of leading software for the convenience retail and petroleum wholesale industries, has announced new enhancements to its XDR services offering. The enhancements follow PDI's acquisition of Cybera and ControlScan in December 2020, the creation of the PDI Security Solutions line of business, and the continued integration of security capabilities across the company's solutions portfolio.
PDI XDR Complete is a fully managed cybersecurity solution that utilizes extended detection and response capabilities to protect IT systems from advanced threats. This agile monitoring service helps businesses prevent, detect, and respond to cyberthreats 24/7/365, enhancing security without consuming internal resources.
With the steadily rising volume of cyberattacks threatening all types of businesses—especially retailers with multiple locations and hybrid workforces—PDI remains vigilant about raising awareness and helping those businesses avoid becoming yet another statistic. Unfortunately, several recent high-profile ransomware attacks have revealed common vulnerabilities that can contribute to increased exposure and business risk.
According to Chris Kissel, Research Director of Security and Trust Products at IDC, "Most organizations don't have the internal cybersecurity resources to adequately protect their IT systems and data. With the increased threat of ransomware and other advanced cyberthreats, they're now looking for vendors who can deliver comprehensive solutions such as PDI's managed XDR for C-store businesses. The ability to proactively monitor, detect, and respond to threats is critical to business success."
As a PDI customer for over five years, Nate Morgan, IT Manager at Pride Stores, said, "We've seen the impact ransomware can have on other C-Stores. Our focus is on keeping our stores operational 24/7. We do not have the time or IT staff to keep up with the constantly evolving cyberthreats. PDI does a fantastic job of providing the tools and expertise to protect our headquarters and 38 stores. They're watching our backs around the clock to make sure our data and customers are safe."
"Faced with today's sophisticated cyberthreats, you must be able to detect threats immediately and take action before they impact your business," said Mark Carl, Chief Security Officer of PDI Security Solutions. "State-of-the art services such as XDR Complete feature 24/7/365 monitoring and leading-edge cybersecurity tools backed by a team of expertly trained professionals. The XDR enhancements are available today as part of our comprehensive family of fully managed security services offerings."
