FedEx Customer Data Exposed
While this story might seem almost trivial (as the technical vulnerability is known, with no signs of immediate impact); I'd call it a "must read" - carefully! 

It is the very innocuousness of the described data breach that is most troubling; as the attitudes and events that lead to it are pandemic in kind.  

"Although the organization was closed, data inherited from 2009-2012 remained available on the server..."  Where have you heard something like that before?  If you've been listening - everywhere.  You wouldn't even have to hear it to expect it, if you appreciate the way data is bought, sold, traded, stolen, abandoned, recycled, repurposed, relocated, disseminated, reconstituted....

There's another troubling element in the article: "On top of that, a recently discovered search engine makes it easier to look for data left on misconfigured S3 servers."  Bad news for anyone who left S3 buckets unattended, and for those unknowing potential victims of poor data governance; but the news gets worse - as the idea of specialized search engines will become bad news for other discovered-vulnerable data storage schemes going forward.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
