First, a proverb: Loose lips sink ships.
Now for the juice.
Convergys is under investigation for allegedly passing off information of a personal nature to foreign countries with inadequate security measures in place.
security has been so lax that customer service representatives have been able to make printed and emailed copies of confidential information belonging to Florida State employees without so much as a breadcrumb left behind.

Today’s slice of life is brought to you by Convergys, who would like to remind you that confidentiality and security are both very overrated.
