Real-life example of people not seeing the big picture

The inability to think long-term, to see the bigger picture consequences of our choices, is no doubt at the root of most information security problems. Here's an example of what I'm talking about...what's wrong with this car?




No, this isn't a race car with Hoosier racing slicks...it's a street car owned by someone working or shopping at a Wal-Mart who has chosen to drive with improper equipment. Like many people who choose to ignore information security problems, this poor sap won't know what hit him the next time he crosses standing water during a downpour.

We must think before we act or we're doomed to endure the consequences of our choices.
