Re: Ha! We'll see....

worked on a site a while ago (ok, a long time ago) where everything was as locked down as possible - not just O/S but hardware things, and standards that said no removable drives by default, and those that had them were encrypted media only, etc. - all worked fine. Multiple antivirus everywhere, and so on.

Weak link in the security chain / fence? One day the Programme Director brought in a laptop from home because he liked it more than the one he'd been provided with the job, plugged it in to the LAN. We (support team) saw it, disabled the port, then went to tell him no. Response was to attempt to shoot messenger, threatening termination and so on unless we plugged his laptop in and got him access to the files he wanted.
