Re: No Excuses
Does the blame line with Mrs. Clinton or does it live with the technology infrastructure that the government has given their employees and how they educate them on using it ?

Security for Gov't officials tech infrastructure

The discussion raises another issue should someone who has a high ranking government official have a private server at their home or should all their communications be secured? Personally I think if you are at the level of secretary of state the government should be implementing an IT infrastructure at your home and other primary residences that is highly secure. After all it's only our national security!

Why

For all companies and governments the issue has to be why is someone using a personal account? If the reason is that they don't want accountability for their email communications then that is a specific issue related to their ethics. If the issue is that the email account from the government or company does not enable effective communications then there is another issue. In the early days of corporate email there were so many limitations we often use personal accounts for speed and to be able to send large documents. If this was the case then there is an issue that should be addressed with government technology effectiveness. If there was another issue then it's an issue with national security that should be addressed.
