Security is not a setting or a switch. Security is a group of processes
and procedures intended to protect a system, be it a single node or a
massive distributed network or anything in between, from the threats
described by a threat model. Security is relative. What constitutes
"secure" for my network would be unacceptable for a bank. Thus, the
question you should ask yourself is if the system is secure enough for
your requirements. This is something to discuss with your IT staff.
