Re: Comment on 200M Records of US Citizens Leaked in Unprotected Database
Wow, another breach where human error and misconfiguration played a role in 800 million records found on the Internet. The data privacy and the controls that were once supposed to be implemented are out of the door. AWS, Azure and GCP have put in measures to help with user error and oversight but it seems that it continues to happen. I am looking for GDPR or FTC to take a front seat to address this issue (sanctions and injunctions) but it seems that this will get brushed under the rug for someone's incompetence work. This is almost laughable but the sheer detail of informaiton found on the web, that had been monitoried months by a security team over the internet is sad. Someone's job or jail time needs to be involved because this PII infromation could be used for nefarious purposes that could affect the lives of citizens across the US (credit monitoring from Experian is not going to fix this, lol).

AWS S3 Bucket



I am trying to figure out why couldn't they do that on the various S3 buckets that were found in the public domain, just curious or someone from the inside set it up to make them look bad (disgruntled employee). I dont' put anything past emotional turmoil.

That was a very good article Kelly, I am not that technical but I see Data is the new gold as we are advancing in AI data is going to be the main target for hackers, I also learnt from this article single point of failure bound to happen in my opinion Blockchain technology will help to secure database. Thank you for sharing the wonderful article love to read more article and gain knowledge thank you again Kelly
