This is no joke. This is a risk all of us face, every single day, whether it’s with a work or a personal email account. We communicate electronically all the time. We share intimate details of our lives with the recipients of our messages assuming that it’ll never be public. It’s not social media after all. But if the network that stuff is sitting on gets hacked, it’s open season on whatever information you have there.
Now, however, things will be different. I am in my final week working for Syntricate. The next time I update my LinkedIn profile, it will be for real. I will be the eDiscovery Training Manager for Nuix starting on December 15.
So yeah, we need to talk about this. Not just in IT, in every industry and workplace. 1 in 10 Americans reports suffering from depression. If you have more than 10 people working in your company, there is a very, very good chance that someone there is dealing with depression, and is at risk. They, like me, need help.
