Does the rash of AWS S3 bucket leaks and hacks really come down to a single click of the mouse

It is certainly possible. So take a moment to read this and send along to your team.

"I watch company after company make headlines for a data breach. There has been a common thread with many of them in the last few months of having exposed their data in an AWS S3 bucket. We have seen the likes of VerizonAccenture and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and many others get unwanted attention in the media when they “accidentally” exposed their data in an S3 bucket. Now, I put quotes around the word accidentally because you need to consciously enable that access to have this situation arise."
