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.
