Justification?

At the ISSA meeting last night, one member complained that a company he'd approached for security services (one of those where it is mandatory that they have seecurity services), rationalized that they didn't need commercial services because they'd hired a kid hacker who protects "their stuff". Being my cynical self, I asked, "So did they hire an arsonist to keep the place from burning down?" It's crude but I've never claimed not to be a relative of Loud-Fat-Bloke...

Hey, it could happen! Nice slogan though: "Security isn't thin"
