Linked: SANS Suffers Data Breach After Phishing Attack

My initial reaction to the headline was “Great, what chance do the rest of us have of not getting hacked if SANS can get hacked?”

But, like Sharon, I think this is really great:

“This is the part I really like. To make this an educational opportunity, SANS says that it will host a webcast that includes information about the incident that will be useful to the entire security community.”

The details of the breach seem to indicate it was minor, which I also assume means there are measures in place at SANS to mitigate the damage that a single email account breach can do. So, between talking about how it happened, and why it seemed to be so limited, there is a lot of material there that SANS can use as a training scenario.

That should be interesting. Can’t wait to hear more about it!
