Hum HH I wonder what they use for security then as I doubt they would want nasties sniffing around.
I personally am really concerned with the minimal training or even the lack of training and education that is given to employees who work with some extremely confidential personal information regarding security when that work involved the use of computerised systems.
I am talking not only financial information but information that can and probably is used by individuals for ill gotten gains. I think that sometimes we get fixated on the financial aspects of security and tend to show little regard for an individuals privacy to name but one issue.
Most of the people I work with are really quite blaise' about security and I often see this when they bring along their machines because they are "slow" or not working properly at all. This has in my mind an add on effect in how they apply themselves to the work they do - when using computers or computer systems in their daily course of work time.
