  3. I'm not sure I agree with the title of Lori's post, but I agree with the sentiment of the post completely. Information Security mandate is not lock it all down. Our job is to ensure that appropriate controls are in place based on informed risk decisions and business need. Sometimes that means things happen that make us cringe, but we cannot force things that make it impossible for the business to function, no matter how "secure" we think that might make us.
