The Executive Bully
The Network: HQ location of nationwide retail chain
The Expectation: Higher up’s set an example for the rest of us
The Catch: Senior executive is fed up with having to reset her password every 90 days. Calls down to the IT Helpdesk and yells at a junior tech, insists that her password should be set to never expire.
The Find: Once this password is compromised, the outsider becomes an insider with high level access and low chances of eviction.
The Lesson: Security is for everyone.
