Dan O’Sullivan Talks About the RNC Breach

I spent some time this morning listening to the official breakdown of “The RNC Files” as the team who discovered the breach at Upguard hosted a live broadcast via BrightTalk:

In what is the largest known data exposure of its kind, UpGuard’s Cyber Risk Team confirmed that a misconfigured database containing the sensitive personal details of over 198 million American voters was left exposed to the internet by a firm working on behalf of the Republican National Committee (RNC).

Dan O’Sullivan takes us through exactly what happened and why. As the analyst who first broke the story that is now being referenced in the House Intelligence Committee hearing, he will shed more light on the events leading up to the finding and what was exposed.

Dan was also awesome for answering making time for a Q and A and even answered the question I submitted: “How do you talk about cybersecurity vs. cyber-resiliency in a cultural context in the conversations you have within organizations?”
