Security’s thankless role in IT

When you walk through the checkout line at your favorite discount retailer, you don’t wonder why the clerk is in such a pissy mood. When the guy hanging on to the side of that big truck slings your garbage all over the street and moves on, you don’t ask yourself “what was he thinking?” And when the person at the drive-though window hands you somebody else’s order, and shortchanges you, what do you think you are really going to accomplish by complaining?

Gives you a pretty good idea of why IT security seems like it is in such a state of shambles – keeping the house locked down is a thankless job!
