On this week’s Breach of the Week, we learn the importance of measure twice, cut once. Why are we sharing this timeless carpentry advice? Well, for one, it is great advice to ensure you don’t waste construction materials but for our purposes, the breach this week is about an email sent out with the best of intentions and instead releasing significant PII data. As if you need another reason to check your email, we also talk about an email involving Nicholas Cage and yet another email that revealed who was pulling their weight at a big corporation. We highlight these mistakes because it is so easy that anyone could mistakenly do this, proving yet again human error is a significant vulnerability. So, check that email twice before sending, measure that board twice before cutting, and stay off our Breach of the Week!
