Should Security be in Your Organizations RNA?

RNA.pngI was talking with some folks today about security and one of them said “Security needs to be in an organization’s DNA”. I thought for a moment “Wait, wouldn’t it be in the RNA not the DNA?”

 

The main role of RNA is to transfer the genetic code needed for the creation of proteins from the nucleus to the ribosome. This process prevents the DNA from having to leave the cell’s nucleus, so the DNA stays safe.

 

It’s not a big deal, but it does make me think about security a bit differently. It is about information at rest as well as on the move.
