On Security and Corporate Executives
Do not think that, just because you are a corporate executive, you are somehow exempt from the laws of human nature. Security rules that apply to the rank-and-file employees of your company, also need to apply to you.
The best thing you can do, as an executive, is “lead by example.” If you can get your fellow executives to do the same, so much the better.
On the other hand, if your first thought is to come up with excuses why a security rule shouldn't apply to you, then perhaps you need to re-think the need for that security rule in the first place.
