After a brain injury it is super important to exercise like never before until you are exhausted. At first this will take only a few minutes but as the injured parts of your brain gain help from
other healthy parts God's healing power will take over. The rest is up to you and your persistence to survive this nightmare. A neurologist told Scotty, "You will never be the
same. You may not perform at the level you once did but you may find a new normal and that's ok"
We are sponsoring free Cybersecurity courses toward certification, LinkedIn profiles, and resume tune-ups, and interview coaching to become chronically capable cyber crime fighters. These
steps help toward achieving their training and certification for disability inclusion.
Want to get started in cybersecurity on the Microsoft stack? Here's my suggested path for Microsoft SC-900 exam prep (includes a free 85-question practice quiz). This is a great entry-level
Microsoft security exam (all concepts, no hands-on) most can study for and clear in only a day or two!
Watch the videos, ask me questions, leave me a review, tell your friends! Good luck!
The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Framework provides a blueprint to categorize, organize, and describe cybersecurity work into Specialty Areas, tasks,
and knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs). The framework provides a common language to speak about cyber roles and jobs and helps define professional requirements in cybersecurity.
Security success is ruining the attacker ROI - Security can’t achieve an absolutely secure state so
deter them by disrupting and degrading their Return on Investment (ROI). Increase the attacker’s cost and decreasing the attacker’s return for your most important assets.
Not keeping up is falling behind – Security is a continuous journey, you must keep moving forward
because it will continually get cheaper and cheaper for attackers to successfully take control of your assets. You must continually update your security patches, security strategies, threat
awareness, inventory, security tooling, security hygiene, security monitoring, permission models, platform coverage, and anything else that changes over time.
Productivity always wins – If security isn’t easy for users, they'll work around it to get their job
done. Always make sure solutions are secure and usable.
Attackers don't care - Attackers will use any available method to get into your environment and
increase access to your assets including compromising a networked printer, a fish tank thermometer, a cloud service, a PC, a Server, a Mac, a mobile device, influence or trick a user, exploit
a configuration mistake or insecure operational process, or just ask for passwords in a phishing email. Your job is to understand and take away the easiest and cheapest options as well as the
most useful ones (for example, anything that leads to administrative privileges across many systems).
Ruthless Prioritization is a survival skill – Nobody has enough time and resources to eliminate all
risks to all resources. Always start with what is most important to your organization, most interesting to attackers, and continuously update this prioritization.
Cybersecurity is a team sport – Nobody can do it all, so always focus on the things that only you (or
your organization) can do to protect your organization's mission. For things that others can do better or cheaper, have them do it (security vendors, cloud providers, community).
Your network isn’t as trustworthy as you think it is - A security strategy that relies on passwords
and trusting any intranet device is only marginally better than no security strategy at all. Attackers easily evade these defenses so the trust level of each device, user, and application
must be proven and validated continuously starting with a level of zero trust.
Isolated networks aren’t automatically secure - While air-gapped networks can offer strong security
when maintained correctly, successful examples are extremely rare because each node must be completely isolated from outside risk. If security is critical enough to place resources on an
isolated network, you should invest in mitigations to address potential connectivity via methods such as USB media (for example, required for patches), bridges to intranet network, and
external devices (for example, vendor laptops on a production line), and insider threats that could circumvent all technical controls.
Encryption alone isn’t a data protection solution - Encryption protects against out of band attacks
(on network packets, files, storage, etc.), but data is only as secure as the decryption key (key strength + protections from theft/copying) and other authorized means of access.
Technology doesn't solve people and process problems - While machine learning, artificial
intelligence, and other technologies offer amazing leaps forward in security (when applied correctly), cybersecurity is a human challenge and will never be solved by technology alone.
Immutable Laws of Security
Law #1: If a bad actor can persuade you to run their program on your computer, it's not solely your
Law #2: If a bad actor can alter the operating system on your computer, it's not your computer
Law #3: If a bad actor has unrestricted physical access to your computer, it's not your computer
Law #4: If you allow a bad actor to run active content in your website, it's not your website anymore.
Law #5: Weak passwords trump strong security.
Law #6: A computer is only as secure as the administrator is trustworthy.
Law #7: Encrypted data is only as secure as its decryption key.
Law #8: An out-of-date antimalware scanner is only marginally better than no scanner at all.
Law #9: Absolute anonymity isn't practically achievable, online or offline.
Law #10: Technology isn't a panacea.
