I wouldn't count on it. It has become clear to me that the higher your paygrade, civvy or mil, the more security you can violate. Cell phones in scifs because, well, he's the general. Classified brought home because, well, its safe with him. etc.

Yep, cell phones was one issue that we won though. We installed some cell phone detectors outside of a secure area and didn't tell anyone (other than our direct boss) so when one of the VIPs came by to do a walk-through (one of the biggest wastes of time) and no one checked him for cell phones before entering, this deep bass voice suddenly intones:

"AN UNAUTHORIZED WIRELESS DEVICE HAS BEEN DETECTED! PLEASE REMAIN WHERE YOU ARE UNTIL SECURITY PERSONNEL ARRIVE!"

We laughed our butts off afterward. The idiot was going to ignore it but we had the reg posted on the inside of the door and believe it or not our boss backed us up. It's a minor victory but I'll take any I can get.
