Last week Twitter had a successful social engineering attack that pushed through a Bitcoin scam. The scam netted about $120k for the scammers, but for Twitter it caused huge damage to their brand with the news of this attack going around the world.
Although we don’t have any hidden information about the Twitter hack that’s not already public, I thought it would be fun to look at the kinds of security controls that would help stop this kind of attack.
Yesterday we looked at all the multi-X controls. Today we’ll be looking at other strategies that can help mitigate the compromise.
