    Hmmmm, very interesting viewpoint.

    The security mindset is a valuable skill that everyone can benefit from, regardless of career path.
    Accountants, auditors in particular, have had that mindset since way before Babbage invented his "mathematical engine"

    I would be inclined to extend it further and say that business people should develop an IT mindset, and that IT people should develop a business mindset.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
