Napolitano’s secret to Homeland Security? Don’t use email


Janet Napolitano (AP Photo)Former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, who left to join the Obama administration and preside over the Department of Homeland Security at a time when the threat of cyberattack was never higher, tells CNN that she never uses email. This during a cybersecurity conference, of all things, in Washington, D.C.

According to Napolitano, not having any of her own email accounts makes her “very secure” even though it also makes her a “Luddite.”
