* SThe guards at the Fishes refugee house in ''Film/ChildrenOfMen''. They let Theo [[ExactEavesDropping overhear the plan about his execution]], let him enter Kee's room unchallenged, don't notice him [[VehicularSabotage sabotage the cars]] and only notice the group escaping when the car is right behind them.

* Averted when ComicBook/IronMan tried infiltrating SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom's castle with an armor that can become invisible. When he tried, Stark forgot the little fact that Doom's had enough run ins with the ComicBook/FantasticFour's Invisible Woman sneaking around to have numerous sensors everywhere specifically designed to detect invisible intruders.

** The [[EstablishingSeriesMoment first episode]] took this UpToEleven, with Archer detailing how high-tech he ''believes'' the main server room to be... only to discover that, [[FromACertainPointOfView while technically accurate]], it's abysmal.

** In ''Series/TheFlash2014'' spin-off, STAR Labs appears to have an "open door policy" for anyone who wants to come in. Partly justified by the fact that the lab no longer employs security personnel (in fact, it employs less than half-a-dozen people now). Captain Cold ends up just strolling in without Cisco's alarm even going off. He is, however, supposed to be a master thief. In Season 2, Cisco claims to have upgraded the security system to keep anyone from coming in. Two seconds later, Jay Garrick walks in with no explanation (and he no longer has SuperSpeed to justify it). Cisco's supposed "security system" constantly fails throughout the season, frequently not even warning anyone that someone is coming. During a cross-over episode, Team Arrow asks Cisco if he's finally gotten rid of that "revolving door" at STAR Labs. Cisco counters by pointing out that ''both'' Team Arrow headquarters have been broken into. The point it proven when Merlyn keeps randomly appearing there with a StealthHiBye, surprising even Barry.

** It doesn't help that companies frequently require employees to remember passwords to several different systems and set up expiration periods, forcing people to create new passwords every X number of days. An average person is more likely to use the same exact password for all those systems, only changing a digit or two when creating a new one. Additionally, despite companies forbidding people from writing those passwords down, people do, since it's a hassle to call tech support every time they forget a password. It's amazing what you can find taped under people's desks.

* Steve Gibson explains in [[https://media.grc.com/sn/sn-530.mp3 episode 530 of Security Now]] that the public address system at most target stores is simply a three digit extension on a telephone. This is how [[http://hellobeautiful.com/2015/10/16/target-porn-over-pa-system/ someone was able to play porn over the loudspeaker]]. * In fact, this is the whole objective of the [[https://www.grc.com/securitynow.htm Security Now]] podcast.

* As part of the plot of ''VideoGame/Hacknet'', new "invoiability error" security is produced, which renders your HollywoodHacking useless on those machines. The solution? Poke around in less-secure areas for the usernames and passwords needed for the secure terminal, often left strewn about in unencrypted text files. As mentioned under the ''Deus Ex'' example above, anyone in IT security will tell you this is the most realistic way of getting access to secure servers - people really will leave secure codes in files like "prometheus PW.txt".
