Numerous companies have shamed themselves by posting their sensitive data and encryption keys to public cloud without any protection, where cyber criminals and security researches find them.
What is the better way to get a bad dent to the “professional” cover of the data security consultanting company than doing exactly this? And yet those companies keep doing exactly that mistake one after each another. Like consulting companies saying together “do not do like I do, do like I say you should do”.
First Deloitte leaked data to clouds, and no Accenture seems to be following this disconcerning trend: first leak the secret keys to kingdom and then try to downplay incident in PR (who will believe those downplay stories anymore?)
