US Gov't Strategy To Prevent Leaks Is Leaked

from the not-quite-getting-it-yet dept

There's something rather ironic that the US government's document on how to get various US government agencies to prevent future leaks (a la Wikileaks) was quickly leaked to the press. But, it's not really that surprising, is it?

Of course, the main thrust of the document isn't to question whether or not so much secrecy is really necessary, but to send out a memo to various government agencies suggesting they use psychiatrists and sociologists to sniff out workers who might be disgruntled (full memo embedded below). Among a variety of (pretty unsurprising) suggestions for keeping confidential information confidential, the checklist of things that organizations are supposed to do includes:
Do you use psychiatrist and sociologist to measure:
Relative happiness as a means to gauge trustworthiness?
Despondence and grumpiness as a means to gauge waning trustworthiness?
I didn't realize that you needed to use such professional help to figure out if you had a disgruntled worker on your hands. Isn't it the role of managers themselves to have a sense as to whether or not their employees are disgruntled? Though, I'm somewhat amused by the idea that the US government thinks that a psychiatrist or sociologist can accurately pick out who's likely to leak documents.

Not that it's a bad thing to try to figure out if there are disgruntled workers or to make sure secure systems really are secure. I'm all for that. I just think it's a bit naive to think any of this will actually prevent future leaks. You just need one person to get the info out, and there's always someone and always a way to do so -- as demonstrated by the fact that this document itself "leaked" so quickly. It seems a better situation would be to focus on making sure that any damage from such leaks is minimal.

Best way to sniff out a rat is to let them know exactly when and how you are going to attempt to sniff them out.

Actually I will just wait until you are reported to the FBI and your Embassy a out your admitted drug use, and the combination of exteme anti American remarks and gun ownership. We will let them fucking toss your life around some and show you how much America loves you. It's not about truth it's about your consistent need to spread your hate.

gov't doesn't promote managers based on who'd be good for the job but seniority and meeting standard minimum requirements. so of course they don't have good managers that keep tabs on their employee's and their mindsets.

of course, we should totally trust our health the the same fucked up system.

There is no system in this country that doesn't fuck up. Private nor public.
