#infosec Name and SSNs sent in the clear.

I’m more than a little disappointed at people not being serious about information security. One of my customers asked me to help load data from a school system into an apex application I designed for some years back. The excel spreadsheet received from the school system has teacher names and social security numbers. The excel file was not encrypted in any way shape or form. I’ll be contacting the school system on Monday to resolve this issue. If it’s not resolved in a short period of time, I’ll be sending the data to their local news paper. This has got to stop.
