Comic: The CIOs Avengers

CIOs like to hand-pick their best teams, but not everyone can get this lucky with talent.

If only you were the CIO of SHIELD.

@Gigi3, good point about the focus that is required in the security function. The security officer has to deal with many trade-offs, lock down the environment too-much and productivity ceases to exist, and not enabling the right level of protection causes the bad guys to enter. The role is related to other titles as well for instance, the vision or standard that the security offices hopes to implement will need to be communicated to the entire team/organization.

"The best team comes together in 4 dimensions. The best warp engine engineer of the universe is of no value without the surrounding environment in place for instance, the Shields officer, the communications officer that is responsible for the universal translator and the Transporter officer, etc., are all required."

Brian, I think you haven't mentioned about security officer and his role?

@Whoopty I'd prefer a Tardis for transport. Perhaps we'd add a feature that allows it to become pocket-sized when necessary instead of being parked.

That aside. If I was going to have a little robotic transport solution, I'm voting for the hover ball that Dr Robotnik always flew around in.
