The security team is all black for affirmitive action purposes. They hired (probably, from my own speculation) an almost all white team of white men and (occasionally) women to do all of the actual skill required jobs in the building. Then, to appease the eeoc and affirmitive action boards, they hired black people to do all of the unskilled menial labor. Its common, and why white people cant get a job without a college degree or some form of skilled trade certification like HVAC. See, companies are subject to tax penalties if they do not have a ratio of blacks(or other largely unrespected minority, eastern asians[chinese, japanese, and koreans] do not count as minorities in these polls) to whites equal to or greater than the ratio of blacks to whites in the city of the company`s headquarters. This may be (once again my specualation) why so many companies have their headquarters in largely white, rural communities. Ie... The midwest.

In the event of a fire or any other disruption, any remaining datacenter operatives are sealed behind fireproof barricades and left to fend for themselves.

As someone who is forced to freeze his ass off in data centers for most of his life, most of this is fairly common for a large company. The only thing I haven`t had to deal with yet is a retinal scan. It`s usually hand scanners

Fort Knox could take lessons? Really? Their measures were not extreme at all. Sometimes hyperbolies can be forgiven, but that is just absurd. No more secure than many warehouses, except for the green space around the target facility.
Thetas- I was thinking the same thing too.

But what does it matter when they so easily hand out this information to its numerous business partners?

I`ve never doubted their security.

Interesting to know that your data is in multiple facilities. If terrorists attack one with an EMP, your data is still safe.

Now privacy breaches and invasive advertising is another matter...

I found it funny that majority of the black people were tucked away in a room watching video screens. Were they just trying to fill the quota of showing minorities? On that note, I didn`t see any Asains.

So only one white person working in security, and only one black person working anywhere else?
