What happens when a bored IT admin meets a hotel Wi-Fi network that does not want to cooperate?
Recent security breaches are so egregious and so truly detrimental to the bottom lines of some really well-known brands that they’re — ironically — becoming decreasingly effective cautionary tales about security.

Far better is to search out personal examples of network security misadventures we encounter during the course of our everyday lives.

It’s also unfortunately something all too common in our enterprise networks, especially when we’re standing up branch office infrastructure.
