Officials at the nuclear-weapons laboratory, already struggling to calm concerns over security lapses, now have two more breaches to explain. Both of these latest incidents where 'human error' on the part of employees including an e-mail containing classified material sent over the open Internet, rather than through the secure defense network and a vacationing employee's laptop containing government documents of a sensitive nature and an encryption card advanced enough that its export is government-controlled being stolen from a hotel room in Ireland. It seems we will always be our own worst enemies when it comes to IT related security.
