Information Security Quote of the Day

"It's seems like there's a problem with security inside Homeland Security and that makes no sense"

 - James Slade, TSA screener and the executive vice president of the National Treasury Employees Union chapter at John F. Kennedy International Airport in talking about the lost TSA hard drive containing Social Security numbers, bank and payroll information for roughly 100,000 employees in May, 2007.

NOTE:  The agency said it did not know whether the device is still within headquarters or was stolen.

Hardly a week later DHS employees announced a class action lawsuit against the TSA in AFGE, et al v. Kip Hawley and TSA which to my knowledge has not yet been resolved.
