You are in charge of your company’s small IT workforce. Your five employees currently service a government contract which means they, you, and your company must meet certain mandated minimum certification requirements. You and your people have met these certification demands over the past year and all appears in order. You know this because every employee has turned in a PAPER COPY of their CompTIA Security + certification card and identifying number (and you were with them, and took the exam with them, when the company paid for the test last year). You maintain a list of everyone’s card number and expiration date and revisit it every quarter to ensure the workforce is receiving enough continuing training to maintain their “good standing” status. Additionally, keeping track ensures that nobody will be surprised by an upcoming expiration (and you can schedule any needed exams in advance).
When you arrive at your office on Monday morning, you find an envelope (unmarked in any way) with a copy of Terry Smith’s Security + cert card and number. You have no Terry Smith in your employ, nor do you know any Terry Smith. You don’t even have any “Terry’s” or any “Smith’s” in your workforce. HOWEVER, the certification number MATCHES one currently turned in by one of your employees: Andi Baker. Andi is a stellar employee, been with the company for years, and is a single parent with two children. You remember that Andi initially failed the Security + exam when the company sent the team en masse to take it last year. In fact, having a 100% certified workforce was the major reason the company was able to bid and subsequently win this lucrative government contract. However, the company would not pay for a retake for Andi, but did allow Andi the opportunity to obtain the certification on Andi’s own time BEFORE the company started work on the contract. Andi did in fact take the exam again and passed it. Andi turned in a copy of the certification card and number.
Perplexed, you call CompTIA. The CompTIA rep, after hearing your description of “hey, i’ve got two matching numbers here!” replies, “Let me guess – one of them belongs to a TERRY SMITH.”
