Happy Monday! Time to crawl back into the web and start climbing for the top as if your retirement savings depended on it, which — ha ha ha! — psych! Nobody currently living will ever be able to retire! But you knew that!

In any case, here is a mega-roundup of your cyber and crypto news links for Monday, so you can be just that much more prepared for whatever the immediate future has in store. Like, say, you probably can’t mitigate a Chinese cyber-attack, but at least you can convincingly tell your co-workers, as you huddle underneath your desks from the shower of sparks coming from each monitor, “I told you so. Because I read The Cryptosphere.”

So, that’s something.
