Two email stories

First, a must-read.  “Hackers Could Expose Any of Us,” Wall Street Journal, December 20, 2014 C3.  Bruce Schneier, a guru’s guru on security stuff, writes about how surprised experts were at how lax Sony’s protections were.  Then he makes the point that none of us are safe from a determined bunch of hackers.

Second, should you use email, and, if so, how long should you keep it? “Are You Sure You Want to Use Email?” Wall Street Journal, December 20, 2014 B1.  You really have to use it, so how do you reduce your exposure? Move it off-line?

Lots of lessons out of the Sony hack.
