Governments' perimeters fail
Even governments can fall victim to the scourge of this failed approach to security. The US Office of Personnel Management, or OPM, is one of the most critical agencies within the US Federal system. This entity is basically responsible for housing the total collection of all human resource records for every person that is employed by the US Federal Government. This includes millions of current and past Federal employees' and military members' personal information, as well as the results and data for every security clearance investigation that is used by the DoD to validate access for its most secretive agencies and programs. One would think that with this type of data, and knowing the extreme value of this data, the agency would be one of the most secure within the DoD. Not so.
