My YouTube channel being hacked // Lessons learned from hack

I wish this was just clickbait! Unfortunately my YouTube channel got hacked recently. In this video I explain more and share some lessons I\’ve learned. I\’m hoping that this helps educate both you and your family.

I answer questions like:
– Do I fire the person responsible?
– Did we not use 2FA?
– What lessons were learned?
– Do I change the way we work?

NOTE: In case this wasn\’t clear in the video: The person in question was using 2FA and a password manager. Access was still made to YouTube. So, like Corridor Crew and others, even though 2FA was used, someone still managed to get access to my YouTube channel.
