Mailbag: Recession Security

Last week, Doug wondered whether tough economic times mean companies should be extra careful to protect their data against inside threats. Barb thinks it's a good idea -- but companies should tread lightly:

It doesn't hurt to walk through security practices and settings. It may be a wake-up call to many of us. But I hope it doesn't create unfounded suspicions against fellow employees -- witch hunts, of sorts -- timely though it may be. We have enough bad feelings about our economic quagmire; we don't need to manufacture more.
