Me and my job
How do you describe your job to average people?
I tell people that my job is to protect data and equipment, making sure that their information is kept private, can be trusted to be correct and is always available when needed — just a riff on the C-I-A triangle. I say I am also responsible to make sure we are in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and common sense. Then I throw in that I get to play with all the cool toys, some days I am Neo, some days Agent Smith.
