Parent friend: Should I use (popular kid tracking app) to monitor my 14 year old?
Me: Probably not…
Then: We’ll, I’m gonna use it.
Me: Okay, well at least turn on MFA on this thing that tracks your teen’s entire life..
Then: Oh, how?
Me: *Checks app, no MFA option exists at all*
So… you’re telling me all that stands between rando abusers and thousands of kids’ internet activity and real time location data is a password policy from 2004 or however insecure their parents’ email is.
Sorry, I got autocorrected, but you get the idea 🍸🤷🏻‍♀️
The more typos I make, the angrier I am.

Disinformation (especially disinformation driven by social media emgines) is having real, measurable impact on our lives and our country every single day now, and I’m just flummoxed by the leaders and pundits who aren’t taking it seriously enough.
I have read three articles just this morning on how misinformation-driven vaccine hesitancy is drastically impacting three different verticals *today*. Just this morning,
There are real, qualified people working every day on tackling this problem but their work needs to be taken seriously.

Wow, this is a pretty good SMS-based phish. Don’t think I’ve seen this pretext before.
Pretty authentic branding, and offering compensation for something users can’t validate but sounds plausible. I bet it will be super effective. Minimal glaring “security awareness” training type errors.
@TMobileHelp you had better get on this stat.

Okay. I’m not the biggest Apple fan, so I don’t normally follow Mac hardware but EXCUSE EFFING ME BUT are you seriously telling me a $1400 MacBook Pro cannot drive two standard resolution monitors at the same time without DisplayLink kludges?!
This is opposite from the definition of “pro”
My 2016 MacBook Pro can in fact run two external monitors.

There are not many ICS cyber security degree programs out there yet, but what I’ve been seeing has me very worried about curriculum.
Like, ICS cybersecurity is definitely a balance between process engineering, electronics, and traditional cybersecurity. Balancing those skills is a lot harder. Usually people are not experts in all those niches, but they do have to be able to learn them quickly and reason well.
If you focus entirely on one of those things you’ll be in trouble. If you try to learn them all to granular technical detail you’ll be in trouble. If you cannot understand and think critically about them all on the fly at a high level, you’ll be in trouble.
