  • You can have all the security in the world deployed but it doesn\'t matter if you don\'t have written policy AND enforcement frm management to back it up. TSS
  • Also to raise awareness with management!
  • Just as with all things external, you have little control of the event. It is the preparation and response which makes for a good security program.
  • Used it to alert Tech management about the potential for mis-use by employees.
  • Legal Dept. had a field day and made all 10 items grounds for dismissal
  • This was just a publicity stunt!
  • Sent to IS Security for their eyes only
  • Thank you WSJ for giving instructions to people to attempt to end-run IT policy. Thanks a lot. You\'re a great friend, and very knowedgeable about the subject at hand.
  • The advice is so blatently juvenile that it will not affect a real IT department. Those following the advice given will be terminated so they will cause no future harm. It was iresponsible journalism with no social merit.
  • It was given to me by management and I had to respond to each item specifically that morning. Least Privilege covered most of it for us.
  • We\'re locked down enough as it is ... to paraphrase Princess Leia, the tighter your (unreasonable) grip, the more people will slip through your fingers.
  • Business as usual, here.
  • 2 words, \"Job Security\", Thanks WSJ, More billable hours for me!
  • We already had these holes plugged. They shouldnt be advertised though.
  • found a lot of useful information
