“Fed Staffers Broke Rules In Release Of Minutes,” Wall Street Journal, August 30, 2013 A2. http://on.wsj.com/1duW7LO. Fed staffer emailed minutes of policy meeting a day early to a bunch of banks, investment firms and congressional staffers. Distribution list changed to exclude financial industry trade associations and bank lobbyists.
Lower-level employees often make mistakes, or don’t follow rules exactly. Is an email to a distribution list the best practice for sensitive data? Do you have a second line of defense? And a third? Does digital rights management offer a possible solution?
