TSA and Security

Lots about the TSA, scanners, pat downs, and security in the news recently...

Part of the problem is that we think technology is the answer to everything. Maybe because I work in IT, I don't see it as a magical solution to every problem. Recently an HR manager complained about the head of the union forwarding e-mails to a third party. She wanted to know if the "ICT Appropriate Use" policy could be used to stop him from forwarding the messages. I had to walk her down from the ledge by asking what she would want to do if he put a memo from her into the postal mail. Turns out, she wouldn't do anything. Why would e-mail be any different?

It has happened before and it will happen again: How we react has changed
