We all make assumptions about an individual’s relative resources and capabilities based on their career. For example, you don’t expect the CEO of Goldman Sachs to go broke and you wouldn’t expect the CEO of Starbucks to serve you the perfect cup of tea.

It is no longer the case that most people work within a monolithic corporate structure and attacks are no longer limited to large enterprises.
