There is just too much focus on edge cases in our industry. It’s not usually the 0-day that’s going to get you, or North Korea. It’s the admin portal that’s been sitting out there for weeks without you knowing. It’s the websites you didn’t know about that are running two-year-old unpatched frameworks. It’s the EC2 boxes that have Mongo on them full of your data with no credentials. And unprotected S3 buckets.
