Maybe HR departments should call past employers for background checks, its a bit old school but when people have no criminal records, what could have Home Depot’s HR department done ?\ \ IT Hiring anti-pattern:\ \ 1) Brag about writing viruses in high school, and then publish derogatory remarks about teachers and making threats against students who he believed had reported the malware\ \ 2) Trash a former employers computers after learning you where going to be fired.\ \ 3) Get a job as Home Depot’s senior security architect\ \ 4) Have 56 million Home Depot customers credit card data stolen by malware….\ \ 5) Get sentenced to prison for item #2\ \ #homedepot{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}\ #itsecurity{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}  


No prizes for guessing where this virus-spreading teenager turned bitter IT security guy ended up working…
