Just proof connections get you farther than work ethic or qualifications.

There is a river of wealth available, you just need to be allowed access to its banks (pun I know) and you are allowed to drink as deeply as you desire. Old money loves to support orchestras and operas, those are their versions of working class sports teams and players. Most likely her close proximity to real wealth gained her this position at the river of wealth they control. "Here take this position and show up for board meetings and collect 2.8 million for being there once a month. There is no reason for you to labor anymore, we've chosen you to be one of us. Just please don't purchase your new estate in our neighborhood, stripes with stripes, spots with spots. Also please stop buying off the rack darling. You look so pedestrian, let me set you up with my designers and seamstresses. You will adore having bespoke fashion. Ta! Ta!"

I work for the wealthy most my clients got their money in the 70s running drugs then went legit by buying up us property and companies. Now they own banks and insurance companies. I have heard the "you work for me now, stop buying off the rack darling." speech a few times.

That article almost had me sucked in, but then I came across

What do we say to the millions of women who have not received equal pay for equal work? What do we say to the millions of Hispanics and blacks who have labored to build a life for themselves and their families, only to find that even when their experience and education are identical to whites, their compensation is not?

I'm starting to wonder if maybe Equifax was partially to blame here.....................

Yes, they were the responsible holders of the information.

H1Bs and shitty corporate culture are probably to blame--this kind of fuckup is the tip of the iceberg with these kinds of companies.

Her degree will come in handy when the top execs at Equihax who lost all that data by their incompetence and then made millions on it by insider trading have to face the music.

Also has at least fifteen years in IT. Lots of people in It have degrees that don't match their jobs.

Not saying she's qualified, just that this itself isn't meaningful.

IT guy here. Bullshit and you know it.

You don't hire a chief security officer without the fucking proper qualifications. Sure, maybe it's not a degree, but what about certifications? CISSP? Equifax had a HUGE fucking obligation to protect their data. As much as any hospital with HIPAA laws.

Go find me a Hospital that has a person with only a music degree as their chief security officer. I'll wait.

This breech could have just as easily happened from a fully degreed pajeet. Using a piece of paper to cover your ass doesn't work in the real world. There are real consequences to being incompetent. She was incompetent, and no certification would change that.

I read an interview with her and wow did she sound dumb regarding tech. She kept mentioning hip buzzwords like cloud and we have a requirement like HIPPA, but I could tell she was an executive type NOT a good CTO. I bet the financial elites PLANNED this poor security. Make money

I agree, but doesn't instill a lot of confidence and makes we wonder what made her resume rise above the rest.

[–] JoeKerr 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

She had experience going into the security job. I will give a pass there. But how did she rise above the rest at HP with a masters in music? In 2002 there were plenty of computer scientists. That is the hire I have a problem with.

How do you figure? She has her position down as simply "professional" she could have been been working in HR.

Thank goodness, at least Equifax has proven they are not misogynistic, sexist, racist, or bigoted. That's what really matters, come on people it's 2017!
