Me

I'm the last person who should be administering a network. Give me a harmless laptop to destroy. It's safer.

Oh wait, that already happened.

Stupidity and Laziness

by faradhi In reply to Fill in the blank: The bi ...

Ignorance is a lack of knowledge. Stupidity is the purposeful lack or ignoring of knowledge. Users, execs and administrators that do not follow even the most lax security practices because "It just won't happen to us."

Laziness: Users use 123 as their password because they just cant remember one more password. Execs that do not want to enforce strong passwords because they don't want to **** off Mrs. Oldlady the receptionist or secretary who sat behind moses in the second grade. Execs that don't allow admins to lock down desktops because that same Mrs. OldLady just has to install weatherbug.

I could go on but I think you get the point.

Lack of documentation

by Drewski59 In reply to Stupidity and Laziness

Face it. We're not invincible and we owe it to our colleagues to leave evidence of what we've done and how we've done it. Combine that with the fact that we can't remember EVERYTHING that's been done and we've got issues.
