People Are Our Greatest Asset, Goodbye!

People

The Chinese are smart and talented, and there is a cyberwar going on. 


They are suspected are having just stolen the personnel information of 4 million federal government workers.


And there are 4.2 million active, including 1.5 million military personnel. 


So if as they are apt to say, “people are our greatest asset”…


…then we just sort of lost the CROWN JEWELS in terms of highly personal, sensitive, and critical information on the people that handle everything from defense and diplomacy to the economy, energy, the environment, justice, and health and wellbeing. 


Oops!


This is getting scary folks. 


When the adversary through cyber (and other) espionage can know our people, our technology, our communications, virtually everything…then we got some big vulnerabilities!


If we can’t defend ourselves adequately (at least for now), I hope at least we are doing okay on the offense! 😉
