Havlicek Steals The Ball – No One Steals The Data: Information Security And The Boston Celtics

| July 9, 2010 | Cloud Computing, Data Breach, Secure File Transfer

We’ve all been to the company meeting where tons of sports metaphors have been thrown about. From the in-depth analysis of how the company is just like the Patriots, with the CEO being Tom Brady, all the way to the simple comparison of your department being just like the Celtics starting five.

Rajon Rondo, Doc Rivers - Boston Celtics

I always wondered if Doc Rivers, during a time out, explained a play and used the analogy of Kevin Garnett as the VP of Marketing, or even better something like this:

Rajon, you need to protect the ball when passing, don’t throw it into traffic. Think like Ipswitch’s safe and secure file transfer. You know, using 256-bit AES encryption …”

You get the idea.

So, what happens when sports and a common business issue like data security have a nice pick and roll and drive to the hoop for two?
