Can you explain (in low tech management friendly speak) the risk of

a) not preventing virtual machines from taking over resources
b) not preventing virtual disk shrinking

So for the above two, whats the ultimate risk, who can exploit the risk, what could the overall business impact be? Whats your view on the overall risk of these 2 exisitng configurations, i.e high risk, medium, low, not an issue?
