At the end of the day
At the end of the day, I reckon that your employees need to have a certain trust in your company or loyalty, if you're expecting them to do something for the safety and security of your company, then you also have to make sure that you reward that service to the company somehow too right?

Re: At the end of the day
Hi Cameron. Yes, I think that's right - and in fact, the breakdown of employee/employer trust is a major challenge that companies need to get past. It has to be a relationship; a lot of security goodness happens when there are strong relationships between the senior leadership and broader employee base. Without that, it becomes a zero sum game, and the imbalance can really cause some challenges.

No end
There is no end when we discuss about the insider status of living. It needs to be viewed from different angles in order for us to grasp what the whole idea basically stands upon. It might not even make a huge difference at the very beginning but as soon as we see progress, it would most certainly be of a huge scale.

Re: No end
Definitely agree that looking at the problem from many sides is critical - it's fatal when we take a single perspective and don't look at it from the different stakeholders are coming from.
