Operation Security or OpSec is so vital…it’s crazy. Whatever color hat you wear, as a hacker we all need good OpSec. One thing I’ve seen in my years of reading criminal complaints, arrest warrants and court proceedings for fun is that 99.9% of the time, a cyber criminal is caught because of OpSec.
Here is a GREAT lecture on how OpSec can get you arrested.
And lastly, I wanted to post my own Lecture on Russ Ulbricht/ The Silk Road and how a silly mistake from years prior is how he was caught.
