Such is the rate of discovery of system vulnerabilities that no-ne can afford to rest on their laurels and say "The network is secure". All that can be said tese days is that "We've secured all today's known problems". Various surveys indicate that the majority (in the range of 80% - 90%) of security problems are internal to an organisation. Even if your network does not connect to the outside world, you still need to be aware of the possible problems and vulnerabilities of your systems in order to prevent them allowing inappropriate access.
