Well, the presentation was focused on enterprise systems...

But there were some underlying themes:

* Users will work around anything, including security features, that
interfere with them doing their job.

* It is impossible to completely secure a system. A prevention only
approach doesn't work well.

* An effective security model is built around Deter, Detect, Delay,
Respond, Remediate.

* Security is one of multiple threats to system integrity.
