News broke last week that Hillary Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct official government business during her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State. What is coming to light is that Clinton may have violated federal regulations, which require officials to conduct day-to-day operations on authorized information systems that have a proper level of security controls. The use of a personal email account might have left Clinton’s communications vulnerable to hacker attacks. “Anytime a senior executive runs all or even part of their official email traffic through a private email account it raises concerns over both accountability and security,” said Wave President and CEO Bill Solms.
