On 17 September 2018, an unknown cyber-attacker launched a DDoS attack against Infinite Campus, a large, established information management company.

A journey to a Moroccan village frozen in time

Our vehicle wound ever higher up the earthen road cutting through Morocco’s High Atlas mountains. Below me, the red soil spilled like wine between green dots of forest and sheets of white snow. I lost myself in the dizzying beauty of North Africa’s tallest peaks, and as I nervously peered out of the window, I saw there was no guardrail separating us from the sharp ledge and distant valley below. Our journey had started an hour earlier at the base of the mountain along an ancient caravan trail that connects…
