The Week Ending Sept. 22
Topping this week's roundup of those having a rough week is the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which was dealing this week with the fallout from a hack of the agency's EDGAR database.
Also making the list this week are Apple, for cellular connectivity problems with the new Apple Watch Series 3; HPE employees, who are bracing for job cuts; Avast, whose CCleaner software was compromised and used to distribute malware; and IBM and the Canadian government, who are dealing with criticism over a problematic and expensive IT contract.
