“We need a better data security strategy to protect the flow of our customers’ data,” Carl, the founder of the small financial consulting company, told his IT guy. “The survival of our company depends upon it.”
“No worries, boss,” Ivan said. “I’ll need about three weeks to lock this place down tighter than a drum. Our clients’ data will be secure.”
****Three Weeks Later****
Carl called Ivan into the conference room to make a presentation to his senior staff. “Can you give us an update on your data security project?” Carl asked.
Ivan turned down the conference room lights, turned on the projector, and opened up a PowerPoint presentation that he projected onto a screen at one end of the room. “Behold!” Ivan said as the image appeared on the screen.”What is that?” one of the attendees asked.
“That, my friends,” Ivan said, “is a depiction of how the new firewall I just finished installing will secure our servers. As you can see, it will protect our clients’ data from even the most malevolent fire-breathing dragon of a hacker who would dare to try to get to our servers.”
Suddenly the image on the screen disappeared and was replaced by this image.“Oops,” Ivan said.
