jmahler asks: "Suppose you work for a fairly decent-sized (but independent) CPA firm in the IT department. Suppose further that you have repeatedly warned the partners of the dangers of having unsecured laptops in the field, and have requested to replace the very thin, and rapidly aging line of defense (and functionality) currently protecting your network from all of the mean and nasty folks on the Internet. Let's continue, then, to suppose that the partners have all agreed to ignore every recommendation put forward regardless of cost or benefit. Is there a good way, beyond memos and emails, to inform the partnership that the water in which they tread could quickly become dangerous? What about absolving ourselves of responsibility for data theft and loss from a laptop 'disappearance' in the field?"
