This percent is scary if you ask me, I wouldn't trust anyone with passwords and security data in my company. After reading the results of this survey data center security is suddenly more interesting and appealing.

Maybe it's futile.

I'd like to think IT people are more ethical than the guys who sunk Enron & Arthur Anderson.  But, if your corporate culture follows the "greed is good" model, what more can you expect?

It's not just "the worst" types, either.  The big companies all have made "golden parachutes" and bonuses reguardless of performance [or lack of] the norm.

I'm thinking that what this will soon lead to is all IT staff needing to be bonded just to get a job...

...must be as important a qualification as a certification or technology skill set. Tech knowledge is a tool that can be used for good or evil ends - and given the difficulty of catching the bad guys in the act, that means that the most powerful barrier to misbehavior among the technologically skillled is a properly formed conscience.

It's amazing how illogical a business built on binary logic can be.
