“Can we talk?” If you’re a process control engineer trying to converse and coordinate efforts with an IT technician in the same company, or vice versa, the usual response is “not likely.” However, if you’re trying to discuss security problems, solutions and coordination, then the answer is probably “never” because potential lines of communication are even more closed off.
