Any job where one is expected to be perfect will inevitably overwhelm the
employee.

Any job where one is expected to be perfect is job is full time.  If you
don't think so ask all the Security personal who were sacked after "I Love
You" went around.

Anti-Virus really should be included in the job description of your Security
Manager.  It also depends on the size of your environment.  Obviously if you
have 10 PCs you don't need a security manager.  But then again if you have
10 PCs you probably don't need an IT staff.  I would say that if your
environment is over 1000 PCs then it would pay to have a full time security
person.  If not, the guy who is assigned to do it should make sure he has
his manager signs a disclaimer, "I will not be held responsible for any
damage caused to the network by viruii which were contracted while I was
accomplishing the task for which I was hired."  It's a bit harsh, yes, but
you need to protect yourself from those big fat corporate types in times
like these.
