Hi everyone,

Many thanks to everyone who gave feedback on issue length and curation. The general theme seemed to be that most of you don't mind a lengthy issue, as long as it's easy to skim through. And that it might be a good idea to have a separate section with "quick links that were interesting too". Going to give this some more thought.

Meanwhile, as a testament to our skimming skills, this week has given us 15 entries in the "breaches and leaks" section, goodness.

The rest of this issue is a minimal version I'm afraid. I took a few days off to go to a sort of crisis management training, and loved it. But I'm also exhausted :-) So I'll share interesting articles but without writing the summary myself, instead using the one that the news site itself presents.

Have a good one friends!
