Checking In

We have a ton of new subscribers!! Welcome to the Security in Color community (gang, gang!). If you are new don’t forget to check out the previous issues, which can be found here. Want to catch up on weekly cybersecurity news? Check out the podcast here.

It’s been a long week. I am ready to turn into a burrito in the bed and binge Naruto (Kakashi stan all day, err day). I slacked a bit and didn’t do any AWS study lives this week but my test is Sunday so I am doing an extra-long review session on Saturday. Tune in on Twitter to view, probably around 2 pm EST.

Anywhoo, enjoy the newsletter and have a good weekend!
