If you have a high-level/secret clearance job, it could be for good reason, the Storm has a poor operational ability, and its security features may not be up-to-snuf and airtight as a Pearl.
(edit - the Storm having security holes is a rumor, possibly invented for this situation)
Although BB's are built to be secure, there is a reason why Obama wasn't allowed to keep one at first.
Otherwise, its just people using the power they have. I would bring it up to someone over their head saying its not harmful and doesn't negatively affect the company....
