NSA contractor nabbed for pilfering agency codes

There have been several posts about this discovery and arrest at the NSA.  Another insider has stolen classified information.  Many people continue to ask the question – How can this happen at the NSA?  What about all of their security?  What about all of the efforts required to obtain and maintain a security clearance?  The answer to these questions is simple and found in the article.  A motivated insider with proper access is extremely difficult to defend against.

The questions I would ask everyone within earshot – Is your security and background checking process as strong or stronger than the NSA?  If not, then why are you not incredibly concerned about insider threats?
