English term or phrase: whether in their midst or passing down decrees from above
It's a worst-case security scenario of hiring a nutcase. Unfortunately, the security sector isn't immune from bozos, incompetents or know-nothings, {whether in their midst or passing down decrees from above.} Indeed, security pros are less likely to be judged on the merits of their output than are, for example, code jockeys. What gets in the way can be politics, bad luck, misguided C-level execs, out-of-control consultants, lack of communication, isolation from other parts of the business, blind faith in certifications or simply the difficulty of getting rewarded for what doesn't blow up.
