Rudy Giuliani needed Apple genius help to unlock his iPhone after named Trump cybersecurity adviser

Giulianiís handling of the situation calls into question his understanding of basic security measures, two former FBI cyber experts told NBC News - Oct. 31, 2019, 11:18 AM CDT - By Rich Schapiro

Less than a month after he was named President Donald Trumpís cybersecurity adviser in 2017, Rudy Giuliani walked into an Apple store in downtown San Francisco. He wasnít looking for a new gadget. Giuliani was looking for help.

He was locked out of his iPhone because he had forgotten the passcode and entered the wrong one at least 10 times, according to two people familiar with the matter and a photo of an internal Apple store memo obtained by NBC News.

ďTrump had just named him as an informal adviser on cybersecurity and here, he couldnít even master the fundamentals of securing your own device.Ē

1. Hence the butt dialing

I'm guessing after he got it busted open, he never bothered to secure it with those pesky passwords again.

2. Being stuck at the Apple Store is bad enough.

Being stuck at the Apple Store next to a brain dead Rudy Giuliani who canít remember his passcode sounds like pure torture.

3. Pathetic. And by what right does he have to call himself a 'cybersecurity expert'? What school ...

did this scumbag go to, to gain this title? There are thousands, if not tens of thousands of IT professionals who have actually gone to school, worked in related fields, etc. Pathetic and so misleading. Why would anyone ever hire this scumbag...oh wait, the Russians might but I can't think of anyone else (other than rumpface).

4. Was cashing in on "cyber security" since 9-11 - travelling the globe for fees

Him and his fellow mobster "Police Commissioner" Bernard KERIK, the latter turning the City-paid apartment, meant for respite for First Responders, into a love nest for himself and MURDOCH's pet Judith REGAN ("Regan Books).

When GHOULiani was said to be "A noun, a verb, and 9-11" it should have been added to: CASHING IN on 9-11.
