Nikki Haley is an idiot - it is somebody's fault - hers. Haley is trying to claim the hacker was sophisticated -she is only doing this so she won't look so stupid. This Breach could have & should have been prevented-its called encryption & anybody responsible for servers knows this. Just about every company in the private sector encrypts social security numbers because it is a violation of Sarbanes Oxley to not encrypt social security numbers. If they didn’t – Heads would roll. This should have never happened in the first place if she had decent IT people. I want more than one year of protection - 5 years from now if someone steals my social security number - I am going to sue the hell out of SC and it WILL be Nikki Haley's fault. Bet these people don't answer the phone Its a great day in SC!!
