Interesting insight, but it is the reason i talk about "Secure practices" - These don't apply only to the administrative/design side, but stretches to the user side - Users need to understand the possible ramifications of a little security laxity (firewall turned off, weak passwords, not updating SW etc ) that they tread for comfort (more work);  and as security people our mission is to continually educate them on the same.

Incidentally, this is the first tip i cover on the link :-) - But yes, the link is secure.............and i get your point, its as "oxymoronic" as it can get
