    Exactly. It's obvious that security isn't their top priority and look what happened.

    Typical. Anyone who leaves BlackBerry doesn't have security as their priority.

    Do you guys have these responses all pre-typed in a word document and just paste them in each time a corporate entity leaves BlackBerry or gets hacked?

    This has nothing to do with mobile devices. Even companies that use BlackBerry as their mobile provider can have their network hacked. Apples and Oranges. I know it would be great for the faithful claim this as a victory for BlackBerry, but come on. You're just making things up now.

    No, it's another credit card hack like Target. Probably involves their POS terminals and servers.

    It has nothing to do with mobile devices used by employees.

    Bad security decisions likely behind both.

    Nice fallacy there. The two have nothing to do with each other, and were likely systems put into place by completely different units. If you think adopting iphone signifies a company-wide lack of security, then you're beyond any logical discussion.

    If they used blackberry and had another system compromised, it would be poor implementation.
    But because it's not blackberry, it's due to lack of security consciousness.

    Get a grip.
    What does texting while driving have to do with smoking in front of babies? You say 'nothing' and I say wrong, they both are caused by bad decisions.

    Yes they are both bad decisions but completely unrelated. The mere fact that they are both bad decisions doesn't mean they have anything to do with each other.

    IMHO it's more of an issue of outdated credit card technology in the USA. The magnetic strip is not secure. I think we'll see more retailers get hacked until credit card companies opt for newer technology that is more secure.
    It's not the age of the technology. It is human errors and lax security. In the target case hackers got remote access using a remote admin tool used by a contractor. Who was probably browsing porn on his work laptop and picked up a virus. Etc.

    Any time someone gets admin access to anything, it is game over. Pretty much. iOS and iCloud are quite modern, but weak processes led to the recent celeb hacks.

    The problem is usually the people. Hard to protect from idiocy.

    This is true. We had a BES admin completely wreak havoc with our permissions. People were suddenly accessing FB and Twitter.

    Human error or interference is quite a serious problem.
