Part 3: More Serious Questions
What do you think is the major problem with the industry today, and what needs to be done to fix it?
The major problem is there’s too much information out there. People can easily look up information based on what they want. However, there’s so much more behind the scene. Especially working with the IT team, they would think they know what we are doing. Sometimes they would give us hard time communicating with the stakeholders. Our job is not only to design and install security integration systems, also to consult and educate the efficient way of using the systems. It’s a matter of good communication. Having good team members that can help communicate with the clients is key.
