Former Google CEO Says Everyone Forgot About Criminals When Building the Internet
SAN FRANCISCO (CNNMoney) -- When people built the internet, they forgot about the bad guys. At least, that's according to Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet and former Google CEO. At the RSA security conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, Schmidt spoke about the early days of his career building a network and mail system in the late 1970s while in a Masters program at the University of California, Berkeley. He touched on why internet security is still an ongoing issue, and why it's not completely secure by default.
