(CNSNews.com) - During a cybersecurity summit hosted by the National Journal in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano revealed that she doesn’t use email at all.

“Don’t laugh, but I just don’t use email at all,” Napolitano said when asked about her personal cyber security.

Shane Harris, senior writer for the Washingtonian, asked the secretary if she integrates two-layer authentication with her email and whether she has multiple passwords for her accounts.

That's confidence inspiring...

I don’t believe her. I just think she would be foolish to admit to any security precautions in public; that would just be like throwing down the gauntlet to hackers.

Her lips were moving. She couldn’t go through a work day without email. She has none that are saved, probably wiped immediately for future prosecutions.

If she refuses to participate in the “cyber” world (IMHO it’s a goofy term so I put it in quotes-we mean computers/internet), she should certainly should not be in charge of this goofy Homeland Security Dept, the responsibilities and authorities of which include this security that she refuses to submit herself to.

Of course, it’s a convenient excuse to have no record of emails - no trail of evidence.

About as inspriring as hearing a nineteenth century Wells Fargo official say he never travels by train.

Incompetence, thy name is Napolitano.

She simply misspoke. She meant to say, “I’ve had all my official DHS E-mail communications erased.”

Even if true (and we all know it’s not true) SHE IS UNQUALIFIED TO DO HER JOB AS HEAD OF DHS IF SHE DOESN’T USE E-MAIL.

She may not be lying. Email, even if it leaks to no one who was not intended to get it, leaves a trail that later investigators or FOIA requests might discover.

"Never write [or email] if you can speak; never speak if you can nod; never nod if you can wink." Martin Lomasney, Democratic ward boss/alderman/etc. in Boston.

Let's just call her Winky Napolitano.

Right, if she really doesn’t use email, it’s not because of cybersecurity concerns, it’s because she knows it’s too easy for them to be used as evidence against her.

But I don't believe anything she says. Why should this be an exception?

She works like a Mafia Don. She has underlings do it for her. That way she can deny seeing or sending any inconvenient item.

I agree. I also don’t believe her. There would be no way for her to get her work done quickly/efficiently without using email. I don’t believe her for a minute.

A perfectly valid point. The only exception I can think of is to make allowance for the possibility she tells at least a bit of truth now and again to cover her tracks.
