Sound Bites from our recent Englewood Colorado Security Workshop

December 16, 2008 — Leave a comment

The Pentagon has been breached more than once (Here is one recent example) and over the past couple of weeks we’ve seen the following compromises:

250,000 SSNs – Florida State Workforce Innovation

6000 SSNs – US Army

1300 IDs – MD State Laptop stolen

59,000 IDs – Luxonica Retailer

97,000 SSNs – Starbucks laptop stolen

344,000 SSNs – University of Florida

100,000 SSNs  stolen from the Texas Lottery

I am always impressed when IT security says, “We’ve got it covered.”  It’s rare to find a mid-sized company that is so well prepared when organizations including the CIA, FBI, and Pentagon have all been successfully breached, and a list like this shows up just over the past three weeks.  Or maybe they just think they’ve “got it covered.”
