This must be your first security job, right?  ;-)

All joking aside, this is very common, especially in government jobs,
based on my experience.  It's a tough road to ride down and I recommend
documenting all of your efforts for future reference and being as
supportive as possible while not creating a problem between you and the
people you work with.

Good luck.

Actually no. this is my second.
I used to be a security admin at a private company.  Now it's at a
public college and it's way different.  At the old place I had the
final say in everything. My boss was 100% behind me and management
even the president trusted me.  So whatever I said, was pretty much
what went on.  So picture that. Coming from a place where I had full
say to a place where I have almost no say. is a big change.
yea, I'll just keep working on documenting and trying to show them how
important security is.

If you think technology can solve your security problems, then you
don't understand the problems and you don't understand the technology.
