In 2010 Video, Clinton Lectured Underlings on Cybersecurity and Guarding ‘Sensitive Information’ (Mediaite)
In 2010, at the same time then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was using an unsecured private email server, she also filmed a video lecturing State Department subordinates on the importance of cybersecurity.
“I think this is a responsibility we all share as Americans, but as State Department employees we have a special duty to guard ourselves and our sensitive information,” Clinton said in the video uncovered for the first time Friday by CBS News. “Potential hackers use all kinds of strategies to exploit cyber vulnerabilities and to penetrate the department’s systems.”
CBS notes that the video is “ironic” not just because of the private email server angle, but because the Clinton campaign was just recently the victim of a massive hack. Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta reportedly fell for a fairly simple hacker’s trick, clicking on a “phishing” email made to look like it came from Google and filling in his personal information.
