Corporate Identity Opens the Back Door
Using real data is dangerous. In less than 15 minutes I was able to find information about “former” Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel. His mother’s maiden name was Schreindl. He graduated from Homestead High School. His first job was at Steinhafel's Furniture and he attends Wayzata Community Church. Born in Milwaukee, Steinhafel graduated from Carroll University in 1977 and earned an MBA from Northwestern University two years later. I could say more but for the safety of his wife and three children I’ll stop here.
If Target had requested a BlueHat Hacker Report, they would have been warned. When a high school kid gained access to Sarah Palin’s email he wasn’t a computer genius. He just looked up the answers to the security questions used by Yahoo. Even though that was way back in 2008 this method has continued to grow as the number one way to steal personal data.
Anthem Inc. Failed to do BlueHat Research
You'll be hearing more about the exposure of 80 million customers and employees of
Anthem Inc. Not only did they lack any kind of BlueHat research they failed to meet
HIPAA requirements to encrypt
their data. I raised a lot of eyebrows when I disclosed that Target was successfully
compromised using social engineering based on personal information published for
former CEO Gregg Steinhafel. I couldn't help but see parallels with information published
