Pooley is also the author of the new book, “Secrets: Managing Information Assets in the Age of Cyberespionage,” and he’s come up with a list of nine tips that can help employers minimize the inherent risk associated with a departing employee. I felt they were well worth sharing here:

Self control is one of the twin towers of winning play (the other being correct poker strategy). Knowing the correct move for the situation is absolutely irrelevant if you don’t have the self control to execute it.

And if that happens, Trump will have a redder Senate available to confirm the second nominee. Trying and failing now with Kavanaugh could make Barrett’s confirmation possible in January. Kethledge’s confirmation would be a cakewalk. Essentially, you’d have traded a few months of Kennedy’s seat remaining open after the Court’s new term begins this fall for an excellent justice *and* a more Republican Senate.

Highly risk-averse investors holding Senior Income Funds watched their investments drop by as much as 80% in value. Traditionally appropriate or not, should 75-year old widows hold assets in their portfolios that have the potential to drop 80%? Of course not.
The judge also ordered the “Maleficent” actress to provide her kids with cellphones that Pitt can call whenever he’d like without Jolie monitoring. She’s also not allowed to read their text messages with their father.
