NIST SP 800-171 Revision 2 Release

Feb 24, 2020

Happy Monday! Last week, NIST SP 800-171 Revision 2 was finally released and you can view the document here.

In other news, personal data of over 10 million hotel guests that was leaked in 2017, was just recently posted for sale on the Dark Web. Among the leaked guest records were a few big-name “celebrities” including Justin Bieber, Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey, and government officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration. The data found on the Dark Web included full names, home addresses, phone numbers, emails, and birthdays. Payment information was not compromised and the hotel claims to have informed those affected guests in 2017 of the breach. The information, although a few years old, is still relevant and valuable to hackers.

Lastly, the DoD recently released information regarding a data breach against the Defense Information Systems Agency that occurred sometime mid-2019. The breach involved personal data of government employees, including their social security numbers. Although the details are still coming to light, the DoD clarified that the personal data did not appear to be misused.
