Hey, John, 

I know I'm like a broken record on this, but I think we should arrange a briefing on the cyber threat for all associated with your effort.  We have a real security threat on our stuff here. 

I would gladly work up something with our techie.  We've developed a lot of expertise in this, unfortunately.

I had never heard anything like this from either the campaign or the pre-transition effort and, in fact, have been receiving things of equal or greater sensitivity for some time from both sources.  You guys are presumably much more likely to be made aware of such issues, so when the economic side of the transition gets named, you should probably get in touch with them to give guidance on this.

   I was struck by the memo partly because it was first I had heard of it but much more because it was a sensitive doc bumping around on public email addresses.  

   There is a very real threat to the security of our documents (particularly sensitive ones like the one you worked up), and we need to protect them by at least encrypting them.
