Security breach... that easy?

Today's InformationWeek has an interesting article about a security preassessment in an MNC. It takes the reader to breaches the hired security professionals were able to commit step-by-step, and no one in the company (apart from a few who were told about it beforehand) seems to have a clue what was going on.

While a real 'attack' of such kind wouldn't be that easy, it showed that the easiest to avoid issues were in fact the most vulnerable. e.g. Careless handling of passwords ... that company's CEO had his name as system password and his secretary wrote it down on a paper in her desk... two of the worst examples on how to maintain a password.
