Re: BYOD
I agree with you. Plus the employee is the perfect compromise point. With their level of access you have the ability to circumvent many security safeguards.

BYOD
Some great points here. It's amazing how often major corporations are cracked open when just one employee lets the hackers in. 

However it also continues to raise concerns for me around BYOD policies. It becomes a hell of a lot easier to hack into a network if it is full of devices people take home, leave around and potentially don't secure anywhere near as well as their hardware and software at work.
