The cyber counter ninja training takes the form of a first person video game. You are someone going about their work day and gain points by properly responding to situations where information could be compromised. Yawn!
|At no point do they allow you to take this guy’s cyber lunch money.|
At one point during the scenario you are having lunch at a local cafe. The waiter approaches with the check. As he leaves he pockets your cell phone and the narrator asks: “Oh no! He’s taken your phone. What do you do?” Immediately a list of choices appears on the right hand portion of the screen. Among them are things like reporting the theft to your security officer, walk home dejectedly alone in the rain, and whine indignantly. Being the kind of person I am, I chose: “Go after him!”
A red X appeared on the screen indicating I had chosen wrongly. I was soundly reprimanded by the computer: “No, going after him could be dangerous! Report the theft to your security manager.” Naturally this set me off.
“Are you kidding me? I’m a United States Marine. I’m freaking dangerous! I doubt some waiter would walk off with my phone while my foot was knee deep in his ass.”
After head butting the monitor I stomped over to my data ninja’s office. I let him know his MOS sucked and the stupid cyber course was for desk ridden chumps who never played outside as kids.
Gah! Madness and sissification!
