Here’s one for people who keep track of the consequences of poor information security (sent along by a reader). The Department of the Interior was ordered to turn off the Internet connections for all of the computers with access to data about some money held in trust for Indian tribes because of poor security. Unfortunately, the Department of the Interior comprises the National Parks Service, Bureau of Land Management, and all sorts of other agencies of interest to regular people. Thanks to the judge’s ruling (and the Department’s poor information security), they’re all offline.
