I’m a St. Louis Cardinals fan, so I guess it is fitting that my favorite team becomes embroiled in a big privacy and data security incident. At the outset, apologies for the feature photo above. It pulled up under a search for “baseball hacker,” and as a collector of ridiculous hacker stock photos, I couldn’t resist adding this one to my collection. I doctored it up by adding in the background, but I applaud the prophetic powers of the photographer who had a vision that one day such an image would be needed.
This is a rather distressing statistic. It is particularly distressing because according to another study, “when specific employee behaviors are addressed in a meaningful way to bring about a security-aware culture, the incidence and cost of non-compliance plummets.”

I’ve been a teacher for the past 15 years, and I’ve taught in several mediums including live classes and computer-based e-learning. I have come to the conclusion that the most effective factor in education and training is fostering emotional investment.
Simply put, students must care about learning the material. The more they care, the more they learn.
The notion of getting emotional investment from students might sound like simple common sense, but it is often not done …and often not even attempted.
