Thoughts on a possible quick-win when it comes to reducing potential unauthorized access by third-party personnel that have approved access to your systems (be they on-prem or cloud)
Fact - Most organizations have a valid need to provide access for third-party personnel to their systems for one or the other reason
Unfortunate Reality - 3rd parties don't always let their customers (you) know when one of their people that has access to a customer system departs their employment. They may not even realize the user had access to your system(s)

Yesterday we published a deep dive on Saud al-Qahtani.

Who is he? Since October 2018, he has been known as the "mastermind" of the #Khashoggi murder.

He is one of #MBS's top aides and has been described as the Saudi crown prince's enforcer and chief propagandist.
Al-Qahtani is also known as the "Lord of the Flies" — "flies" are what Saudi dissidents call trolls and bots that relentlessly attack critics of the Saudi state on social media.

They send death threats. They wage disinformation campaigns.

Al-Qahtani has personally launched harassment campaigns against critics of the Saudi regime.

In August 2017, he launched a hashtag that translates to #the_black_list in English — it threatened dissidents that they would be "followed" if tagged.

Sondersitzung des Digitalausschuss im #Bundestag, heute im Saal des Haushaltsausschusses, daher liegen hier überall fette Unterlagen herum. Neben Behörden wie BSI, BMI u BKA sind auch Twitter, FB, Google u GMX da, um unsere Fragen zum #Hackerangriff u #Datenklau zu beantworten.
#Facebook: "bei Bundestagswahlkampf 2017 legten wir allen Kandidat*innen nahe, eine 2 Faktor-Authentifizierung einzurichten, nur 2.1% haben das leider auch getan, ggf binden wir Kandidaten Verifizierung bei #EUWahl2019 an Einrichtung von #2FA". #hackerangriff #Datenklau #btADA
Facebook: "350 URLs haben wir im Zusammenhang mit dem #Hackerangriff identifiziert und geblockt, Inhalte entfernt, Infos mit BSI geteilt" #datenklau #btAdA

Truth! SMS is not a secure #2fa channel for Instagram or any service; and I've just switched what I could to @Authy. Read up on these #simhijacking #portoutscam hacks (and how to mitigate risk) with this great series by @lorenzofb for @Motherboard: motherboard.vice.com/en_us/topic/si…
For its part, @Instagram is rolling out support for third-party #2FA authentication code apps now (like @Authy or Google Authenticator) now, as an alternative to SMS. I've been checking my Settings > Two-Factor screen relentlessly! help.instagram.com/15824741551979…
Because, as @lorenzofb reports, carrier insiders are helping scammers take over phone SIMs even when you add account PINs, I wonder whether using SMS for #2FA is better than no 2FA at all. #simhijacking is relatively rare, so for most folks I think it is. motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/…

Mommy, Why is There a Server in the House?
Do you know
what a server is?
I bet you do!

A server is
a funny-looking box.
It makes friends with computers!

#someofmybestfriendsareservers
Big people have a server at the "office".
The office is a boring place
where big people go and do boring things.
