Have you ever opened an account and regretted it? Has your private data been used, abused, and breached? We have years of experience fighting with hundreds, if not thousands of different apps and services to harden, sanitize, delete sensitive information, and recover from data breaches. In this episode, we share our insights from these experiences so you can hopefully avoid the pitfalls we and our clients have encountered over the years. More specifically, here in Part 2 of 2, we discuss: 1. App and service providers may make it difficult or impossible to close your account or delete your data; 2. Many or most entities will be breached; 3. App and service providers may not actually be deleting your data when they’re supposed to; 4. Phone numbers for SMS two-factor authentication (2FA) being abused; 5. Usernames and email addresses revealing information and linking accounts; and 6. Password recovery and other features revealing information about you. Take these considerations seriously when you consider opening your next account. We also discuss detailed action items for addressing these concerns, but caution listeners that some of the techniques detailed in this episode (fake information, email aliases, VOIP phone numbers, etc.) may not be appropriate or lawful in some jurisdictions or some circumstances.

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
