comment Is it a bad idea for an information holder to e-mail a user their password?
If a user has 'forgotten' about the site, then offer a password reset option. Doing so means that you do not have to store the user's password in a way that breaks standard password protocols.

You say that hashes are not reversible, but wondering if hashes are reversible? You seem to have the answer you are looking for.

comment BYOD - Confirming that Devices are Approved
Why do you want to approve the device along with the user? What problem does that control address? If the user can walk out with the device, (because BYOD), then what is mitigated by limiting what is used?

comment BYOD - Confirming that Devices are Approved
You would seem to require an agent-based solution. You install the agent on the approved devices and only those can connect.

comment Can we trust antivirus software?
Any software could be considered to be a backdoor if they contain certain vulnerabilities. You need to consider the reputation of the vendor and the attack surface of your assets.

comment How to convert http site to full https?
@drjimbob I completely agree with your argument, but this question is far too server/protocol basic. We also don't have enough information to provide the details that would be helpful. If this question could be re-written, then I would vote to re-open.
