Controls in Place

I work with many companies in which the storage and server/platform teams have to sign in blood in order to receive suitable access to perform their day to day work. In fact, for some organisations, it can equate to 50% or more of their time. I've been there and I understand and have experienced the frustrations it creates.

Compare this to our trader friends. Jerome Kerviel allegedly managed to gamble €50bn, more than the assets of his bank, Societe Generale. I wonder how many change records he had to raise in order to get access to that level of funds?
