IT Security Haiku

A haiku is a short poem.  Haiku poetry originated in Japan, centuries ago. 
Usually a haiku has 3 lines and 17 syllables, divided as 5, 7, and 5 per line.
A haiku should offer the reader a new perspective and stimulate thought.

Common sense is the
best defense. It's how we should
assure compliance.
