It looks like you shouldn't buy it.

Sounds like your organization doesn't have the right support for security (most likely they don't understand).
You need to engage in a business impact analysis exercise and see what comes out of that.
That will be input for your policies, procedures, standards, etc.
Credit scores are a good indicator of responsible attitudes.
I think for the most part this is a generalization. I think that if credit scores are the "paramount" factor in hiring decisions, THEN we have a big problem.
I can tell you this:
I have been unemployed for over a year now. I have not ever missed a payment, nor I have any late payments; however, due to my diminished income, I can't make full child support payments -I haven't stopped making them- but I can only pay 1/3 of what I'm supposed to.
Due to that, and just due to that, they have been adding collection entries in my credit. This has had a snowball effect in my credit profile: I've had my credit reduced and even perfectly healthy credit card accounts closed by the issuer.
My biggest fear is that somebody will make a character judgment on a child support collection account showing up in my credit file. I can tell you that my credit file DOES NOT reflect how responsible I am and how much sleep I Iose over it.
I think the current depression should be a gauge that the systems that have been put in place to benefit financial institutions assessment of risk, should hot be used outside that purpose unless it's used in addition to other criteria.
Let me guess... you're the firewall Nazi at your company.
That the hardcore game today is the casual gamer of tomorrow.
Life gets in the way, there's work, girls/wife, kids, etc.
For Christ sake, look at Maslow's Pyramid and make sense of it.
The dudes that are stuck playing SFII turbo (and all its derivatives) 16 years later or playing Counterstrike clones are just stuck in a loop just like the 40 year old dude who still thinks he's a senior in high school.
The California EDD (Employment Development bureau that handles unemployment) www.edd.ca.gov signup website and their phone systems are literally non-responsive.
Maybe more people are filing for unemployment than trying to get their stuff shipped.
"Nixon's great contribution to Republican politics was to master the politics of cultural resentment. Before him, populism belonged as much to the left as the right. William Jennings Bryan railed against the eastern elites who wanted to crucify common folk on a "cross of gold". Franklin Roosevelt dismissed Republicans as "economic royalists". Nixon's genius was to discover that the politics of culture could trump the politics of economics--and that populism could become a tool of the right.""
