To reach the ~youth~ we're going to have to make infosec sea shanties, aren't we? Guess so! Behold the tale of kid who reuses their passwords & ends up pwn'd, then learns how to stay safe. We're on a mission to encourage unique passwords stored in a password manager with MFA on.

This sea shanty was masterfully mixed by @JessieHedgehog and @bittner. So many people contributed their voices, ideas, & thoughts: @JessieHedgehog, @bittner, @TheSweetKat, @DMEdwards, @krysjez, @TheGiantNerd & Jen, @tdotfish, @mattsachs, @viscousfluids! Thank you all! 🌊🐋🧜♀️
Here’s the original call to infosec sea shanty thread, with the reference song included in case you want to hear the original sea shanty called The Wellerman (the viral one for the youths on tiktok right now).
To reach the ~youth~ I’m going to need to make sea shanty songs about infosec principles to stay safe online, aren’t I?Show this thread
In case you are curious: you may notice in this song that I called the attacker a “criminal” and not a “hacker”. A lot of us in the hacker sphere call ourselves Hackers (the helpers are the Hackers), and the ones who hurt folks by stealing money, data etc — we call them Criminals
The whole point of this is just meeting people where they’re at. If younger folks are on tiktok and shanties are trending there then why not make a shanty to help them avoid account takeover. I feel like security education is all about meeting people where they’re already at 🤖🤘
The infosec electro-shanty is here! Thank you @RawrMusique for turning this up several notches.
If you liked the infosec sea shanty and wanted a version you could break it down to then please enjoy the infosec password security *electro-shanty* remix by @RawrMusique. Same password reuse shanty tale, same takeaway message — this time with beat drops lol⚡️🧜♀️👩🎤Show this thread
And another remix to add to this thread so it doesn’t get lost! @Metalerick7’s metal version of the infosec sea shanty ☠️🤘
Original preformed by @RachelTobac Remember to activate 2 step authentication and also use different password for each accounts. keep your info secure :) #Rock #Metal #cover #informationsecurity #IT
And another to add to the thread! @auscert had a live band do a rendition of this sea shanty at their event. Cool af
