Because Rich People Find Computers Difficult

The S1E3 of the HBO Show “The Flight Attendant” a characters is introduced as the boyfriend of the lawyer who knows his way around a computer. He says:

“I'm good with technology,

and rich people are kind of...


Generally extortion.”

Hilarious. Later in the show the lawyer asks him some “hypotheticals” on digging for information that she's struggling to uncover. (22:51) She asks him how long it would take to get something, he says 20 minutes.

This is all just knowing how to search online for things. Often times referred to as OSINT.

The interesting thing here is that a) this is all legal and b) lawyers should probably know how to do this.

Reminds me of my episode with @Infosecsherpa.
