No email, no problem
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano left many in the industry dumbfounded when she suggested she could do the job without using email. At a breakfast for reporters in Washington hosted by the Christian Science Monitor recently, she said, "I think email just sucks up time ... in a job like mine [it's] inefficient." Why the shock? Many believe that in this day and age, without email, it's almost impossible to receive, analyze and understand all the intelligence necessary to ensure cybersecurity. In her job, some argue, email is pretty darn important.
