If you were told by a VP to simplify security for your organization,
what you think would be a starting point?  It's seems vague.  We run
Windows servers/desktops that are built on the same images.  We use
Cisco switches/routers/etc.  I'm not really sure where to start.

I would start by asking him what, exactly, he meant by that. If your
security stops at the hardware and operating system levels, that's
pretty simple. Are your policies too complex for non-IT staff to
understand? Perhaps people have trouble accessing files due to tight
access restrictions?
