The Security Digest: Week 15

Hello and welcome to TSD, your regular blog post with top of mind security issues! TSD began as an internal newsletter that our Security Lead, Daniel Tobin, would circulate to the team each Tuesday. It proved to be a great resource for all of us so we thought, why not share it with all of you? Our hope is that it helps make you just a bit more secure.

Check back here every Tuesday for more TSD or sign up below to stay in the loop!

Hi Cyraloons and welcome to another week of TSD, your regular email / blog post with top of mind security issues, a few security tips for both work and home and at least 1 fun thing related to owls.

Please reach out to us directly, via or on Twitter at @dant24 if you have any questions, concerns, tips or anything else!

Owl fun and facts:

The above tiny owl in a huge saguaro cactus, is called a cactus ferruginous pygmy owl and is attempting to socially distance itself in Arizona but is finding it difficult. National Geographic is reporting on the extensive history of this at most 6′ tall owl and their current plight. The National Audubon Society also profiled this owl and other wildlife in reference to the border wall construction. The above image and much of the research from both articles was sourced from Aaron Flesch, a biologist at the University of Arizona’s Desert Lab, who continues to study this and other animals in the desert.

A Shout Out:

Today at a virtual fwd:cloudsecNick Jones from F-Secure debuted a brand new tool called Leonidas, “a framework for executing attacker actions in the cloud”. Check out this Twitter thread for an overview of the talk, and keep checking back for the videos of all of the talks posted soon!

That’s owl for now!
