That is not an uncommon problem. If you've made your CEO aware of the risk and he/she is willing to accept the risk, then you've done your job. If their decision comes back to bite them in rear later, its not your fault.

Hi all,

Just want to ask whether you guys have encountered some unreasonable requests from your senior management (e.g. ceo) whereby you as an IT personnel understands the potential security risks involved. But then, when you try to explain the security risks or consequence to them, they won’t listen and just tell you they need this because of business function. At the end, you can’t do anything but to adhere what they request. But then, this leads to so many exceptions created for senior management.
Well, this is what I am currently facing!!!

Anyone has a better way to deal with this?
