On Another Note.....

Fingerprint ID was supposed to add some security against hackers, yet I recently read somewhere that even this technique has been compromised.

Re: Unplug

@Michelle   I couldn't agree more.  The digital world was supposed to be so full of promise, but that was looking on the positive side of things, it seems not many wanted to confront the reality that not everyone is positive.

 

We have apps that track our every movement just because they can - so hacking happens constantly whether it be to individuals, governments or business.

Area of oversight = responsibility
If something went off the rails in the area of oversight of a manager then yes, of course, they are personally responsible and should face the consequences. That does not mean that they intentionally engaged in wrongdoing, but hiring people who do not know what they are doing and not putting proper policies in place is rather negligent. After all, there is a reason why managers get paid the big bucks.

Treat them all as insiders.
Protecting against insider threats is arguably even more important -- since most external attacks ultimately rely on gaining some form of insider access.

Unplug
The all digital future was supposed to be a paperless paradise of effeciency and bliss. I don't like the new version of the future. Analog communications and cash-only transactions sound better with every new data breach!
