CSO Explains Security

A group of people from Company X where having a meeting about security and most of the people didn’t understand why they needed to change the way things were being done. So the CSO asked everyone to “Please put your wallets and purses on the table.” Then he proceeded to explain how he didn’t like the room and felt that the group should move to different room. He asked that everyone leave their wallets and purses on the table while they were gone. Everyone objected to this because the wallets and purses are very personal.

The question that was then asked is “How is this different than confidential materials of the Company?”
