Security

+ - Shaming Companies into Computer Security

Submitted by rtkluttz
rtkluttz (244325) writes "Is shaming companies into being careful with our critical data our only option? Here is an example: I was checking into a local hospital the other day and had just finished giving my life history to the computer Gods. I was walking through the lobby and walked past their scheduling terminal when this pops up. We give our critical information to Doctors, Dentists, Insurance Companies, Car Dealerships while the receptionist gleefully hits social media sites and instant messages their boyfriend. They all pretty much wave our information around on a flag while we watch helplessly. Shaming them seems to be the only way to get companies to take security seriously."

So... did you ever wonder, do garbagemen take showers before they go to work?
