Re: Procedural Failures
Walking out of building with protected data of ANY kind is a crime.  NSA should have better protocols in place to monitor file transfers to, say, a USB stick.  (That technology does exist by the way).  Email transfers can and should be blocked to outside accounts.  And if you are a government agency with contractors, monitoring THEIR home computers would be a good idea too.   But stupid contractors who think they can get away with this crap are the true morons.  Hope he or she goes away for a long time and has security clearance revoked.  There is always that Burger King job awaiting too.

Procedural Failures
It's good they are prosecuting individuals, but really surprised the blame stops there. Procedural Failures and culture are issues that breed these behaviors. It will continue to happen if they don't address big picture.
