Don’t ask who left the door open.

What do you do when someone leaves the barn door open and the cow escapes?

“U.S. Set to Sanction Firms Over Cybertheft,” The Wall Street Journal, September 1, 2015 A8. Allegations of Chinese cybertheft from US companies leads the US to sanction the thieves, without holding the corporations liable for allowing their sites to be hacked.

Whose information was it, and whose responsibility was it to provide reasonable protection from hacking?  Who left the barn door open?
