Classic: “ceo-types” leave date on airport computers

Airport PCs stuffed with meaty goodness | The Register

A rather forgiving article on El Reg today, noting how users of airport internet lounges leave passwords, cached info, emails and goodness knows what else on shared machines in ‘internet lounges’. The message as ever is that ‘security’ isn’t something your IT department do on your behalf, it’s an attitude of mind and a habit of paranoid behaviour!

The only two big questions to ponder are:
1) what’s a “CEO-type”? Are they those people in mobile phone ads? Airport ads, even?
2) Do the beancounters, processing the “essential internet usage on the executive move” expense reclaims, assume that everyone is browsing porn, mailing the mistress or leaving business plans on the desktop? God help my next expenses claim!
