It wasn't "What do you think you need to say to make sure you keep getting paid?", it was "What scares the bloody life-force out of you?".
Speaking as an IT security type, I totally agree with the fears, and that is just professionally speaking.
If I actually sat down and allowed myself to worry about the larger picture of Cybersecurity/Infosec and how it affects my personal life, professional life, future, etc, instead of trying to fix my small area of it one increment at a time, then I might just end up a gibbering wreck.
The fact you put such an unhelpful comment as AC implies you either are extremely ignorant of the way things work here in the real world, or know you are just dead wrong, but have a chip on your shoulder against security types for some reason.
BUT being the paranoid pragmatic type, I am aware it could be both...
