Banking data

I was sorely tempted to pick the dumb starbucks story, and the scope of the parody/fair use exemption.  Can you use parody to sell an otherwise infringing product?  Good luck,  “‘Dumb Starbucks’ Creates a Stir in L.A.,” Wall Street Journal, February 10, 2014 B3

But no.  Instead I picked “Barclays Probes Alleged Leak of Customer Data,” Wall Street Journal, February 10, 2014 C3 Documents from a business Barclays closed in 2011 were given to a newspaper last week.  At issue, documents, such as passports and national insurance numbers, vintage 2008, on up to 27,000 people who asked for financial planning advice.

Lessons Learned:

  • Be careful what you keep.
  • Even if it’s no longer online, it’s still at risk.
  • Banks manage money better than information
  • People love to spill the beans two days before your company is to release financial results.

Does someone have an ax to grind?
