Challenging security policies

Sometimes security controls can prevent or disrupt job activity. In these instances controls may be ignored to keep productivity up. Disruptive security controls should be brought to the attention of supervisors and security teams.

Why is it important?

Security policies may cause productivity issues. This can lead to people taking shortcuts, potentially weakening security and putting data at risk.

It's important to challenge security policies if they impact work so they can be amended.
