Re: Exec insulation from liability
@Whoopty: That's because it was a government organization and a screwup at high levels.

Had this been a company in the private sector -- especially a major company -- heads would have rolled and sacrificial lambs would have been offered to appeal regulators.

Regulators, heal thyselves!

Re: Exec insulation from liability
Yea it's actually quite interesting. That's been a big revelation as part of the investigation into the hack of the OPM, where the CIO just had so little knowledge on how to combat the attack, downplayed how bad it was and wasn't even culpable. That's one big change that's coming.
