Frank Abagnale on Security Breaches

According to a Frank Abagnale talk I attended recently, all credit card security breaches are caused by company employees doing something they weren't supposed to do. For instance, a worker taking a computer home from work and connecting it to their home wi-fi. Frank is the Catch Me If You Can guy (Stephen Spielberg movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio). He's worked with the U.S. government, including the FBI, as a fraud specialist since his release from prison over four decades ago. He's a great speaker, BTW. Catch him if you can (sorry, that just came out). His website: http://www.abagnale.com/index2.asp

Abagnale Addendum

Correction: Abagnale said, at that recent talk I mentioned above, that all credit card security breaches are caused by company employees doing something they weren't supposed to do OR not doing something that they were supposed to do.
