Editor's Message

Welcome to DBD. As 2021 draws to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Safe New Year. This year has been tough for us all, with both the COVID-19 and Ransomware pandemics doing their best to disrupt our way of life, but hopefully our aggressive and progressive fight against these will indeed keep us safe in the near future. Thank you for all your support. Stay safe. :)
