Kitchen Confidential: Mass. Case Lays Bare Unsanitary Data Security Practices

I worked in my share of kitchens when I was younger. I washed dishes, made salads, sous cheffed and worked the grill as a short order cook. And let me say this: one rule you learn when you work in the kitchen is – to borrow a phrase from the folks in ‘Vegas – ‘what happens in the kitchen stays in the kitchen.’ That includes the mouse turds in the pantry, the creative application of wilted vegetables, your colleagues suspect personal hygiene and the waitresses’ liberal application of the five second rule.

UPDATE: The Massachusetts Attorney General has been notified that financial data on 1,800 residents were exposed in a database breach linked to CitySights NY, a sightseeing firm. The case could set the stage for enforcement of the State’s nine month-old data privacy law.
