I tend to believe nothing is secure.

I'm asking out of curiosity--what do you see as the real world risk to a
business system that has kind of an average attention to security, say one
that has credit card information.  Are we worrying about people who do this
for a living, hobbyists (some of whom are real good and highly motivated),
competitors...?  What are the biggest holes?  What can you do that gives you
biggest bang for the buck?
