Uber got Hacked! 🏴‍☠️

☀️It’s good to build leading edge technologies, it’s good to deploy security measures, to be compliant, resilient and Agile.

😱 On the other hand, we all know that it will happen. It doesn’t matter what is your security posture, or the reasons, companies get hacked.

⛲️In most of the cases, the problems are tied to the culture, the focus on compliance instead of security, obsession with automation and new technologies and ignoring the foundations.

👎🏻⛔️However, nobody should take advantage of these situations to promote their products, pretending that they have the miracle security 🔐 potion 🧪

👌Even worse, the kids and pseudo experts throwing solutions left and right or making fun of the impacted companies.

❤️ Takeaways, it’s not the time to think about BS marketing terms or Gartner magic tools 🛠️. Learn from your mistakes, go back to the basics, know and prioritize you assets, educate your people, segmentation, detection and keep least privilege and need to know in mind.
