Maybe it's time to place strict limits on what data companies can collect because they apparently can't ever be trusted with it.

Deloitte has thousands of clients, ranging from tiny to Fortune 10. It appears 'maybe' 20-25 are affected. Not enough information to say what the motivation is.

Time to place bets on when -- not if, don't bother with if -- the subsequent press releases that the hack was "larger than initially reported" go out.

Well rich people have been hacked, so now something will get done.

Right after some insiders sell some of their stock.

/don't actually know if this is a publicly traded company and don't care enough to find out.

It isn't. It's a large L.L.P.

However, if three or more senior Partners were to depart for anything other than age based retirement...

But there COULD be clues if funny stuff happens to the stock of a large client.

Good ol Toilet and Douche, the company that sent the worst IT auditors I've ever seen and I've seen some bad ones.

One set they sent went to get ice cream one evening and they left their laptops in their unlocked rental car and their laptops were shockingly stolen.  The laptops with pretty much full blueprints, so to speak, of our security from top to bottom.  But don't worry, we totally pinky swear the drives are encrypted.

A guy the year before those morans demanded to see the list of trusted hosts on a plain Jane Windows server and created one hell of a stink with management when I told him such a thing didn't exist on Windows.  That stink went up his management chain then down mine to me.  I got reamed out by clueless VPs 3 or 4 times until I finally asked them (at full fark this job volume) to show me the air supply valve on a server.  "There's no air supply on a server."  "And there ain't a file with trusted hosts, either.  That's how ridiculous his demand is.  He's causing this shiat storm over something that doesn't exist.  After the all nighters giving these assholes everything they wanted by morning why would I balk on this one thing?"

And then....fark it.  I could go on for hours on these clods.
