Always keep in mind that business before technology. Technology offers elegant solutions for some problems, but increases difficulties for others. Never lose the sight of target: protection. Be heard and not seen. Be more skillful than you let on; know more than you say. Speak to users, not at them. Know that is education can never be completed.
