A Wake-Up Call Goes Unnoticed

I love the government's response to this whole VA debacle. Let's not learn any lessons here folks. No, let's just fire people. Because firing people creates accountability. No, it creates a culture of fear. People won't stop taking data home on thumb drives. They'll just be more careful about not getting caught.

This is a problem for the government and for every company in America. Breaches occur frequently. Breaches are routine and normal. Breaches are often the result of employee actions. We can keep our heads in the sand, or we can address our attitudes towards data.
