Every year there are reports and surveys which make the case that security inhibits innovation, productivity and generally holds businesses back. I am not going to argue with that sentiment. Security requires that things are done in a certain manner, which can act as a constraint on wanting to do things a different way. What I do want to address is the notion that this is the case because security people just don’t get business. It’s actually the reverse – businesses do not get security. And this misconception is based on several fallacies, false beliefs and myths.
