As a fat old white guy injineer, who has done a ton of IT architecture, Information Security, and Business Process Reengineering engagements, I’m always stunned by stories like these.
Where were the auditors? The Board of Directors? The leadership, and their managers, of Iona?
I don’t blame the Nun; I blame the people who allowed it to happen.
At the very least, they should consider a career change.
