The SANS Ouch! newsletter has always been one of my favorite sources of security awareness content. Whether you simply need a reminder of good sound security practices or you are brand new to a topic, the guest writers always seem to do a great job of presenting timely content in an approachable format.
This month is no different. Understanding the Cloud and how to best approach selection and use of a service is both topical and important. I would certainly echo the advice presented in this article. I would particularly dwell on the recommendation to utilize some form of two-step or multi-factor authentication for any service chosen if available. I would take the added step of recommending you not choose a service if MFA was not an option.
Enjoy the read!

Passphrases make so much sense, yet the use of passphrases seems to allude even some of the most savvy technology users. Kudos to the team at Securing The Human on a great newsletter. Please share with all your users.

I participated in a public Ransomware Panel which our team from Burk I.T. this morning. A huge thanks to Arocna3, Datto, and Eset for their participation. Given our conversations, I thought this SANS Ouch! article particularly timely and appropriate.
