Hackers in the headlines

I had a dream. It was beautiful. In it the world was a safe and secure place. No one bothered anyone else. In fact even data theft and computer hacking had been eradicated.

As I rolled out of bed and grabbed my Wall Street Journal, the first thing that caught my eye was this headline “Hackers Gained Access to Nasdaq Systems, but Not Trades.” Geez. Thank goodness they didn’t get to make fallacious trades:) So much for my dream state.

Are you kidding me?

Lock it down

Companies get your policy ears on again. I have talked my head off making this point over an over. If information is an asset, make sure you protect it. Another example of it not happening as it should – Wall Street Journal reported in an article entitled “Spying Probe Centers on Electric Car” that 3 employees ALLEGEDLY stole e-car secrets and gave them away or sold them. Hello — Lock your stuff down!

R U kidding me
