And this is why security REALLY matters…

Imagine if you went to file your income tax return, only to find out that someone had already filed it and gotten your refund:

That is exactly what happened to 155 graduate and medical students of UC Irvine who were victims of identity after UnitedHealthcare’s (the provider of their medical insurance) records were breached.

Too many IT professional don’t see security in real terms. This is a great example of a very real effect. I can tell you, I would be pissed (er, technical term there)!
