Subject: Senior management really concerns about security?
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,
won't listen and just tell you they need this because of business
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?
