RSA chief: The job of security guy is not to be 'Doctor No'

The job of the security guy is not to be "Doctor No." It's not to say "you can't do stuff," but rather how you can embrace these technologies and how you can do it securely. You can never do security perfectly, but if you do it in the context of risk, you can minimize your exposure... Your job then is to shift from protecting the container to protecting the data and information itself. -- Art Coviello, RSA president
I've said it before and I'll say it again: one too many "No!" and your users will start getting IT business done without IT or security's involvement.
