Everybody on this list surely knows "IT" is much more than a kid running
around replacing keyboards. Sure Amazon can deliver a keyboard to your
dentist office for Sally to plug in, but who will manage do backups?
Futher, per ISO 27002 who will:
- create and enforce segregation of duties?
- create, deliver, and track information security awareness and
- track assets?
- manage access rights?
- ensure cryptographic keys are competently managed?
- enforce secure disposal or re-use of equipment?
- manage installation of software on operational systems?
- create, monitor, and enforce network controls?
- perform system acceptance testing?
- monitor supplier relationships?
- assess, respond, and remediate information security vulnerabilities?
- create, test, and actually perform business continuity in the event
of a disaster (or a pandemic)?
- ensure the protection of your privacy and personal information?
That one kid running around with a keyboard? I don't think so.
Information Technology spans a wide range of activities and to kidnap a
former popular phrase - "it takes a collection of skilled people".
We have to push back on 'deskilling', because if we don't we will all
eventually be standing around waiting for *someone* to get that double
NAT l2tp X.25 eigrp tunnel to route my cat videos to my AWS multicast
