...but in most organisations the risks are insignificant compared with 
the stupid things your users would do if someone asked them to:
Give their password to someone who telephones tham and claims to be from 
Tech Support.
Click on a URL that says it will display a picture a naked lady (etc.).
Click on a pop-up to check if they have any spy-ware

In almost every company with more than a hand full of people, the most 
cost-effective security measure you can take is education, education, OK 
bored now.
