I'm pleased to welcome the new members of the IT Security team.Digital imagescrossed by yellow police line tape As you all know, we've been expanding rapidly (with a buy-out of a rival in Chicago on the horizon) and we have some backlog to catch up on these days.

Before New York and Dallas opened,it was just five of us here in Cupertino, and the network was easy enough to run without formal protocols. Now, with 85 employees, we need to take a good, critical look at our security. C-Bay has a lot of customer and in-house data to protect. Our reputation and continued succeess depend on guaranteeing reliable, secure transactions for our customers. We are responsible for the security of personal financial data for thousands of individuals throughout the world. Your job is to keep that data and the data within our company private yet accessible to authorized users.

The big lie of computer security is that security improves by imposing complex passwords on users. In real life, people write down anything they can't remember. Security is increased by designing for the way humans actually behave.
