We face many “policies” (directives) everyday – whether in real world or in the cyber space. And we are told to comply with these policies for keeping ourselves safe or secure in both domains.
Sometimes, don’t blindly follow the policy because policy makers could make mistake: lack of field experience, don’t understand the subject matter well, having implicit assumption causing incorrect interpretation or putting something that is even not practically achievable.
As an user, you need to think, contribute or challenge policy makers.
There isn’t perfectness in this world. Things always need continuous improvement. Policy makers are expected
- Solicit opinions objectively
- Listen feedbacks
- Resolve ambiguity
- Address incorrectness
If they don’t, they simply fail.
