Could You Be a World-Class Crook?

Everytime I watch a heist movie, it strikes me that the 'brains' of the operation is the person who knows the most about the protective security systems.

You know who I'm talking about; its the one responsible for 'hacking the cameras' or 'finding the backdoor' into the alarm system. While those abilities are exaggerated and glamorized, it is scary to think that integrators/installers/sales reps are the people that have this sort of knowledge.

Ethics is a factor in any profession, especially security. For example, locksmiths take an oath never to apply their skills dishonestly or with malicious intent. I am not familiar with any such vow for the rest of security.

In summary: What keeps you honest? Do you think your skills would make you a good crook?
