After discovering that the pen testers were making off with his laptop, this executive attacked two security experts, wrestled his laptop away, and tried to delete the incriminating data before the guards arrived. A real lesson in what happens when insiders are caught red-handed, with the smoking gun (or in this case, a smoking laptop) in their hands. http://www.darkreading.com/document.asp?doc_id=117 531&WT.svl=column1_1"

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
