    Well, they're not the only one using the system (which is fundamentally different from PC's). They've got to deal with lots of servers with tons of different clients (employees, customers, etc.)

    I've yet to see a lot of Wilders member manage server (farm) security better than big companies & the government.

    Comments and quotes in that article made by people working for security companies, that's immediate ignore. Money is involved, read no further.

    Ya. I believe it's also a matter of IT ignorance and, in some case, of presumption: " well, we are an intelligence service, police, government agency... who will hit us ? "

    IMO it's a matter of paying your IT employees better, and let them actually do something meaningful, not cover themselves with papers. Writing policies is fine, but they need to be implemented as well.

    Also, "hunting the wolf" is a really bad idea. And maybe alongside of "armouring the sheep", we need to give it a brain too... :)
