To do: invest in a built-in back-up program and PsychoAlert®

Analysts are forever telling us that cyberthreats often come from within the enterprise, but one Jacksonville, Florida architecture firm learned this lesson the hard way last week, according to a story.

Employee Marie Lupe Cooley found a newspaper ad for a job that looked suspiciously like hers and listed her boss’ phone number. She exacted her revenge by busting into the office and erasing the firm’s system contents, representing around $2.5-million in blueprints.
