Software Security - Hackable Even When It's Secure

On a recent call, one of the smartest technical folks I can name said something that made me reach for a notepad, to take the idea down for further development later.

When you get to an organization that operates in a highly distributed and decentralized manner the task of keeping security pace grows to epic proportions.
