  1. 1. GET THE BASICS RIGHT  because basics never change  because basics support complexities  because basics are time tested and proven
  2. 2. Because basics were missed! Database of 191 million U.S. voters exposed on Internet as a result of incorrect configuration Database leak exposes 3.3 million Hello Kitty fans The personal information of 150,000 consumers who went into bankruptcy between 2007 and 2011 - including their SSN - were exposed after company failed to properly redact court records before they were put on the public access to Court Electronic Records system - Volunteer email addresses were left accessible via web browser
