Re: security not a big priority?

I have already done some vulnerability testings from the outside and
pointed out some things that needed to be changed.  And again, it's
gone no where.
Just more items added to my list.
And do I really want to hack into my network and break something?  I
shouldn't have to do that.  something should be done proactively.  I
already know the vulnerabilities, I just need to fix them.

Subject: security not a big priority?

So I have a problem and like to know what you guys think.
I'm a Security Analyst at an Education institute. A community college to
be more precise.
So I was brought on board to address security issues and work on making
this place a better place.  Now the problem is.
1. I'm in the network operation team.  no security group.
2. My boss doesn't seem to know much about security.
3. My boss doesn't seem to think highly of security since all my
projects seems to be of low priority.
4. I have a long list of things that needs to be done and they are all
waiting for the engineers to work on it. But again they have better
things to do.
So what am I suppose to do? look for another job? :) anyone run into
this problem before?
I'm at the point where I'm not sure what to do.


Thanks.
