Baseball Insider Corporate Espionage: Making Sure You Aren’t Next

With a successful major security breach happening nearly every month now, it is easy to start treating this as noise, but that could be a career-ending decision. The news this week wasn’t just on the Cardinals hacking the Astros but also on Congress asking for heads to roll on the Chinese hack that compromised the information of a massive number of federal employees.

While I think the drama of all of this is fascinating, the underlying problem is the continued focus on blame rather than actually attempting to fix the problem. At the heart of the federal problem is an endemic lack of focus on making critical systems secure. So much so that last year the Attorney General recommended shutting much of the system down to protect confidential information.
