On December 13, 2020, SolarWinds, a company that provides IT monitoring and management tools to the public sector, acknowledged that hackers had inserted malware into a service that provided software updates for its Orion platform, a suite of products used by many federal agencies. As a result, malicious code may have been pushed to as many as 18,000 customers, raising concerns among IT administrators across all levels of government in their ongoing battle against an evolvingly complex network of malware, cyber-extortionists, and cybersecurity risks.

What do we know about the SolarWinds data breach, and what lessons can IT leaders learn to help them fortify their digital properties?
