Bateye,

That is a very-very good and rational statement you make here.

We often see that what looks like a super-failsafe option (like Automating everything for instance) is anything but that.

I guess that's why we IT Security Folks still have jobs Don't we?

Re: Malicious Insiders are the most dangerous Threat Vector.
There is possibility that things can go wrong, then it will go wrong - this is very true. Every IT professional is trying hard to figure out more automated way of doing things and more robust system. But in the end we still need a strong IT army to keep the light on. I think that's life, though.

Re: Malicious Insiders are the most dangerous Threat Vector.
Stratustician,

What you have suggested here-

Back end systems like those that handle logistics (procurement, shipping, inventory etc) could cause significant damage if they went down.

That is so true!

Its also a really,really good sign that Most Large Retailers are now taking the Supply Chain Back-end Seriously after the Target Breach.

The harder it becomes for malicious attackers to access such systems the better it is for all of us concerned.

For that if you need an Army of IT Folks to police everything so be it.

The cost is worth the loss in Reputation if something goes very wrong.
