So unless you have been living in a cave for the past 2 years, you have likely heard about the Hillary Clinton email scandal. This post is intended to give a little background about what actually happened and a better understanding of what it actually means.
So what is the story all about? When Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State, she decided that she didn’t want to deal with the hassle of using the State Department IT department issued email account and associated equipment such as a blackberry. So she decided to task out to some IT consultants to build out a private email server that she would use for her unsecure email communications(more on that later). At least that’s what she says was her reason. And it certainly may be the reason.
