An email could cost you dearly …


I’m not a lawyer, and I don’t play one on AG.

That said, while at GE I was pummeled with information security policies.  Non compliance was not an option and even the tiniest of infraction, even assumed, was taken seriously.  If, for example, during the nightly after-hours security inspection, a Post it was on a desk (or under a keyboard, mouse pad, phone, etc.) or in the trash with something resembling a password, it was reported, escalated and the offender counseled.  No matter that there was no indication what the alleged password may be to – information security was a top priority.  All documents were to be locked up or shredded before leaving for the day.

I appreciated that.  As a victim of identity theft years ago I have experienced the pain and hassle of clearing it up.  Now, with current economic woes, I think we will see instances of identity theft escalate.  What better place to shop for a top notch identity that home buyers.
