Habituation, I think.

Notice that I used the word "computer" just once with respect to security. It was a relevant peg, given this place, on which to hang the question.

The question also holds for ideas, notions, habituations, proclivities, a general case. If you have ever tried to change your own, faced with writing on the wall, you get a sense of how deep it goes. Appealing to and jettisoning your own motivations ain't easy. It can be like selling your children.

Crisis might help. "Writing on the wall" is crisis anticipated (viz., national budgetary habituation). The writing is up to you. If you can't do it for yourself, how do you manage to do it for someone else?

Like you said: bit of a poser.
