Obama's email phished


It’s not just presidents, high-level executives of every kind are notorious for not understanding IT security, but not being able to just let the experts do their job. I hear lawyers are the worst.


The problem is lowest common denominator hiring for IT staff. If you pay crappy wages and remove merit-based improvements, you’ll end up with shitty staff that don’t care about what they do.

I’ve worked with people who came from government IT, and it was always horrible.


Bah… the real problem is obviously that the laws against this sort of thing aren’t harsh enough yet.

IT workers are just replaceable sprockets!

Its more like standard IT processes migrate to the lowest common denominator. Everybody uses outlook, so you only need that one way to get in to outlook and you are gone.
