This is RICH – both that Hillary had the audacity to proclaim this and that CBS News actually reported it.
From Daily Mail: It’s a lecture she delivered, but would have been better off attending. Hillary Clinton delivered a stern warning about the duty to protect against cyber threats, an awkward 2010 government video obtained by CBS News reveals.
The then-secretary of state cut a video warning her subordinates about the ‘special duty’ to stay on guard. ‘I think this is a responsibility we all share as Americans, but as State Department employees we have a special duty to guard ourselves and our sensitive information,’ Clinton said in the video released Friday.
In grainy video presumably sent internally throughout the world, Clinton warned: ‘Potential hackers use all kinds of strategies to exploit cyber vulnerabilities and to penetrate the department’s systems.’
‘They may try to gain information by posing as someone we trust, or by using social media sites to spread viruses and other malicious code,’ she continues.
‘The bureau of diplomatic security and IT staff work around the clock to defend us against cyber attacks, but the real key to cyber security rests with you. Complying with department computing policies and being alert to potential threats will help protect all of us.‘
Clinton then urges staff to learn more about cyber security awareness by logging online to an internal website and subscribing to their ‘cyber security awareness newsletter.’
‘Together we can do our part to improve the security of the State Department and of our nation,’ she adds.
Since then, the government, including the State Department and the White House, has been subjected to multiple hacking threats. But so too has Hillary Clinton and her campaign, which has been subjected to the release of 23,000 emails to date hacked from the gmail account of campaign chair John Podesta.
