Just being in your office is damaging my brand.
I've been dealing a lot with application security lately, and one of the reasons touted most often as why to protect your code and your app has to do with preventing damage to your brand. Good advice. Most of what I've been reading has to do with the OWASP Top 10. If you're a .NET developer, and you want to read about Cross Site Scripting, SQL Injection, Insecure Direct Object References, and more, I strongly recommend Troy Hunt's free e-book and, if you feel like a Pluralsight subscription, their class on ASP.NET security, which includes great examples of what a hacker would actually do when implementing the OWASP Top 10 against your site.
Snarky: Staying a few extra hours will not “damage your brand.”
