While COVID-19 paused many activities in 2020, cybercriminals continued to keep busy evolving their arsenal of weapons for more lucrative cyberattacks. While companies adopted remote work models and third parties experienced heightened disruption, cyber risk skyrocketed with increased ransomware, credential stuffing, malware, and Virtual Private Network (VPN) exploitation. As a result, the number of data breaches in the U.S. reached 1001 cases last year, with over 155.8 million individuals affected. Now following the SolarWinds hack, President Biden is set to sign off on an executive action to address gaps in national cybersecurity. The move is causing many CSOs to look for ways to evolve beyond the reactive model to an “always-on” approach -- one that proactively mitigates potential threats and risks before they disrupt business.

What's the point of open source without contributors? Turns out, there are several
Commentary: Here are reasons to open source your code even if you don't want contributions.
Interesting topic. However, let’s look at the flip-side of the coin. Those open source projects with one sole developer carry inherent risks in the sense that same sole developer may suffer burnout, dwindling enthusiasm, boredom, or a lack of desire to continue without some form of incentive - usually financial, or sponsorship from a larger entity. In this sense, adopting open source for long term usage based on these principles can be dangerous, and leave you “high and dry” without solutions to any issues that arise.
However, the possibilities here are distinct in the sense that you can fork the project yourself, and assume the role of maintainer, or fork and bring in other resources to contribute / assist in future development. The overall point here is that organisations who may rely on open source software and are then faced with the project being abandoned, or worse still, no resources to assume responsibility could find themselves in a difficult situation.
