Kaseya says they want to do the right thing but now the truth comes out
The company faced renewed scrutiny this weekend following reports that employees had previously brought significant security issues to the attention of executives. In 2019, an employee provided Kaseya with a 40-page memo outlining security concerns, Bloomberg reported on July 10. The employee was subsequently fired, the report stated.

This says it all, instead of supporting the employee for finding issues in their application, he/she was fired for bringing this obvious gaping hole to their attention and now others are paying for their oversight. Where is GDPR or FTC when you need it? Are we going to get a free credit reporting or monitoring session for a year, there should be something said about this and the company should pay for the money lost, where is the accountability?

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
