Steve Herrod :

If you don't have to hand it in I wouldn't worry

Customer:

or will this help me with the assessment?

Steve Herrod :

maybe it helps some people to work that out

Customer:

dude your the man

Customer:

i hate to ask

Customer:

but do you have any other suggestion?

Customer:

you might have covered it

Steve Herrod :

but almost all organizations have all of those as they are mandated to have a security policy

Customer:

right

Customer:

unless you can think of anything else I'm going to let you go

Steve Herrod :

I think that should cover it

Customer:

I've come across your name before and I know you know your stuff

Steve Herrod :

thanks :)

Customer:

are you going to be using justanswer for awhile

Customer:

maybe like another year?

Steve Herrod :

yes - on here as much as possible

Customer:

alright bud, think you just got another customer

Customer:

I'll be in touch

Customer:

thanks again

Steve Herrod :

great - don't work too hard

Steve Herrod :

and make sure you get some fireworks

Customer:

how long would a project like this take you do you think?

Customer:

now that you've helped me with a jump start i dont feel so stressed

Customer:

maybe i will get to see some fireworks after all

Steve Herrod :

it's 3 pages double spaced so not too long - by the time you've summed up the security policy they have it should be largely done

Customer:

good deal, alright my friend enjoy your evening

Customer:

thanks again

Steve Herrod :

thanks - you too

Steve Herrod :

welcome!
