State Department IT requirements

Is anyone else struck by the serious need for a State Department
capability box for users?

"State Department officials say the three people involved were contract workers who misused their ability to access confidential computer files containing passport details."

In my experience a capability system would always be able to prevent this type of poor security administration.
