Better safe than sorry
We should never take security for granted! At the end of the day, all it takes is some guy to target you, and there goes all of your data and privacy! If you can afford to implement better security systems in your networks, do it! It will be better than the alternative.

Be on your best guard
It is highly dangerous to base your beliefs on a set of myths which have yet to be proven by experts. If you are managing a huge account, this situation simply means that you just have a lot more to handle as a lot more is at stake. You cannot simply remain complacent when security is concerned even if you are handling a small firm. You have to be put your best front forward before any security lapses even have the opportunity to occur.

Almost all have one trait in common
Discussed this last night at my A.A. meeting - COMPLACENCY.  The trust that because things seem OK they really are OK and, therefore, fine and dandy.  Most Malware cannot be seen by the average user save something obvious like ransomware or adware.  Google Redirectors are common but the real invasive stuff that hides and steals data is very hard to jus SEE off the bat.  So if it is part of IT and the server is up and staff is working - well then.  My clients would have said SO, WTF IS WRONG????/
