Smallpox and anthrax

Lessons learned.

People get desensitized to the risks and dangers of the things they work with every day.  Specifically and to wit: smallpox virus.

“CDC Needs Tougher Oversight, Critics Say,” Wall Street Journal, July 17, 2014 A3. “[G]overnment laboratories that handle dangerous microbes [have] problems with oversight and a lax culture.”

If the labs handling smallpox and anthrax can’t keep track of stuff,  how can you expect your employees to follow the rules on keeping and organizing your companies information?  Oversight and culture, I guess.
