Top. Men. An IRS Story...

The folks in charge of your health care now:

"The IRS sometimes uses old software without key security patches that leave its computer systems vulnerable and could endanger taxpayers’ private information ... Part of the problem is that the IRS hasn’t even always followed its own guidelines for assessing risks and creating information security plans"

Here's the best part: as a broker who sells on-Exchange plans, we have to take annual re-certification training, part of which is an extensive section on security and privacy, including computer security issues.

Which apparently don't apply to the folks enforcing the rules.

Nice double-standard there, guys.
