User: I need you to look at a computer today. One of our auditors says his computer doesn't have the policy which is suppose to lock the screen after fifteen minutes of in-activity. This is a security issue, as it is one of our auditors, and he has sensitive information on his computer. Me: While I understand your concern, perhaps this employee should follow our rules regarding locking their computer when it is not in use. Fifteen minutes is a long time to leave a machine unlocked if you are counting on a policy to protect your files. User: You know what? That is a good point. Disregard this conversation. /facepalm
