Amazing how the DNC sent out passwords via email to everyone. Think about that for a second. A leading party of our country doesn’t even think about the security of their own organization and now they want us to hire these people. Now the same can be said for the Republicans and something might happen, might.
What does this say about the leadership of an organization? This type of reckless behavior leads to an easy inside job of forwarding one email. It’s a bunch of “yes men.”
I was recently at Oktane where I had the privileged to hear Malcom Gladwell speak about his great book Outliers: The Story of Success. At the conference he speaks about this doctor curing kids who bleed to death and how this doctor had the gumption and spirit to challenge the establishment.
To see people feel they are above this type of enforcement comes back to hurt them in unimaginable ways. Have the gumption to challenge leadership. Have the “bottle” to stand up for what is incorrect.
This also leads to having an Exchange policy on the email server to prevent such email from being sent out and stopped with Data Loss Prevention turned on.
So my challenge to you: Challenge your business leadership to get serious about password management so your’re not featured on Wikileaks.
