Editor's Message

Welcome to DBD. On March 8th we celebrated our 4th Anniversary and the 1st Anniversary of our PRiSM application, officially endorsed by the SANS Institute. Despite recent personal issues that have impacted the amount of time I have been able to dedicate to both projects, I have been doing my best to keep everything as up-to-date as possible, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their patience and support whilst I navigate through this very difficult time. Stay safe. :)
