Since we are in the computer age, what would be our comfort zones that are related to IT.
Is it the presence of a good IT Manager?
Is it with the installation of a security product? A firewall perhaps? Or even an anti-virus system?
Is it with the presence of a tested disaster recovery program? Or an existence of a good and reliable tape backup facility? Or even a remote backup and disaster recovery center?
Or is it plainly, the presence of a systems administrator, who is doing nothing 90% of the time?
Now what would happen if these things fail? Or your most trusted lieutenant leaves?
Does it mean you would be going out of your comfort zone?
