Dear Experts, I just got out of a meeting where my boss took complete credit (no exaggeration) for an idea I came up with to save one of our clients a lot of $$$. She even had the nerve to tell the executive team in the room that she was assigning me to manage the project. I'm guessing she did it to make sure I wouldn't tell them that she had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the idea. In fact, when I presented it to her yesterday, she said that it wasn't that good and she would just 'think about it.' I'm so mad I could scream. I actually left the office and am writing this to you from a coffee shop trying to determine if I should quit. That way, she'd be left high-and-dry with NO IDEA how to execute the concept. What do you think I should do? Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.

  • The fear that a customer data breach will result in a reputational damage
  • Concern that someone might use a stolen card to make an online purchase
  • Thoughts of an employee mistakenly sending confidential data to a wrong email
