    Possibly, but I don't think a GED/High School equivalent with less than 10 years in security could be a well-rounded Chief Security Officer unless they were really really special and not that kind that are one-hit wonders in the security world. Although some one-hit wonders do very well on the speaking circuit but usually they make horrible Chief Security Officers. Especially those who their staff has over 30 years experience but yet has only worked in security for 10 years.

    Completion of Mathematics 101 should be required for Chief Security Officers, that way when they figure out how to configure their Treo 650, they know how many fingers they need to dial. For those who are monitoring my posts and reporting it as "many sources", maybe you should submit you advanced purchase for my soon to be published scribblings on "Out of Whack: and the chemical make up of Ritalan is as compared to cocaine"..
