Imagine being so desperate that you board a dinghy and brave icy cold waters to get to a country you've probably never visited.

Meanshile, instead of focusing on the situation they're fleeing, the rhetoric is about turning boats around and "reducing the pull factor".

Dead serious #infosec career tip: learn to read NIST security publications. They're very clearly written and authoritative. "Can we use RSA-1028 here?" "Not according to NIS 800-57 Part 1." Like, that's an argument ender.

For another example: "How often do you rotate your passwords?" "Never unless compromised." "LOL, why?" "NIST 800-63B section 5.1.1.2 says not to." Go ahead, explain why NIST is wrong.

I got zero responses last time I hit up the Fediverse offering paid creative work, but I'm not giving up!

Some #Owncast features being worked on require iconography. And while we could use an icon library or something like Fiverr it'd be nice to work with an illustrator on the Fediverse who focuses on icons to have something that is custom.

This is paid work, so please boost and tell your friends.

Feel free to message me on the fediverse or email me: gabek@real-ity.com
