Surprise: Hillary Ignored Mandatory Cyber-Security Training

Here’s the lady who wants to be POTUS, in an era of cyber-warfare

(Daily Caller) Glaring shortcomings in cyber-security training throughout the State Department on former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s watch reflected a pervasive anti-security “culture” she encouraged there, according to multiple former intelligence and military officials.

Acting State Department Inspector General Harold W. Geisel issued six critical reports that charged top officials did not submit themselves to the department’s mandatory “security awareness training” during Clinton’s tenure. The training covers procedures for properly handling of sensitive and classified government documents and how to secure digital communications.

Senior officials from deputy assistant secretaries to chiefs of missions at U.S. embassies did not submit themselves to regular training sessions as required by the department and government-wide standards, according to Geisel.

Bergquist called it “hubris. That kind of attitude permeates down.”

If the Boss is refusing to follow the rules, and even flouting/breaking them herself, why would the lower levels think they had to follow the rules?
