6. Security

The backup master was visiting the novice who had just finished installing a network security system for his company.

"See", said the novice, "we have total security here. We have installed the most stringent Internet firewall. All of our staff have been trained to use obscure passwords and not to

divulge them to anyone. We monitor all network traffic and all our email is encrypted. Truly our data is safe from disclosure."

The master fell silent, but on his way out he pocketed a 20 Gigabyte corporate backup tape that was lying around.

Later he posted it to the novice.
