Should Hacked Feds Lose Security Clearance?

OK, I just read an article that the F-secure folks tweeted out entitled: Should Hacked Feds Lose Security Clearance? I understand where the person is concerned that if we are working for the government, we need to be aware of Phishing e-mail so we can protect their information. I can agree with this, however, with the latest in how they are crafted, it can be quite interesting knowing whether it is worth it to click on the links. I think what I’d do is if I wasn’t sure, I would click through to see what it was about, but if it was asking for information, I would exit, just like I did now. Also, I would want to make sure that I read the E-mail carefully, such as “hello paypl member” vs “Hello (name)” where name in parens indicate the name of the account. Depending on the address, I would know for example, that my government address is not associated to any services, so I know not to provide any type of info, even if I did click on links. This is a touch call, because I can see where if you are providing information, you shouldn’t be trusted with stuff that you wouldn’t share with the public anyway, however, if this is going to be implemented, it needs to be done the right way. I’d be interested how this would be implemented, and we’ll go from there. Your thoughts are welcome.
