00:20:18 Jen Marcenaro: Same...vcio is the account manager
00:20:30 Hans De Froy: even when its not officially that way, it is
00:20:48 Hans De Froy: you're the one with the relationship, they'll often come to you first
00:23:10 Joel Osera: What if you are asked to be the Sales Person, Account Manager and vCIO? And also where the leadership in the organization thinks that the vCIO role should encompass all three roles?
00:26:49 Michael Britton: VCIO Traumatic Experience Support Group
00:27:08 art meyer: The other great thing I have learned is that you can only worry about what you can control. If it's out your control, you can't spend your time worrying about it. Instead address the issue with whomever can solve the issue and let them deal with it.
00:27:25 Dan Seafoot: good point Art
00:28:01 Jen Marcenaro: BWAHAH

00:35:07 george: Managing expectations!
00:35:39 Dan Seafoot: That's 100% right Jen - so many times it turns out to be a small communication issue that gets blown out of proportion, or misunderstood.
00:36:46 Rob Danser: Totally- Perception is key
00:40:26 Keala: I need to get more Incident Response plans in place so there's a process to follow ahead of an incident...
