Surrounded by Idiots

Within dealing with Cybersecurity day-to-day work, some seriously state that they're surrounded by idiots. Some, funnily enough, state this more often than others. And certainly, we could find many different types of problems to get along with. Some examples you might recognize; have you ever tried to reason with your stakeholders and nothing went as planned or expected? Or have you left a meeting in confusion with the feeling that you truly did not understand a single person in the room? And worst of all, some people never seem to understand what you are saying, no matter how clear you express yourself
