the continued story of a cyberheist…

He hung up and headed down the hall. Marie didn’t usually talk to him before noon.

His manager’s office door was open when he got there. And Marie was in her office, as he expected.

But she wasn’t alone. Standing next to his boss, in order, were the CIO, HR Director and the Chief Security Officer.

“Please, have a seat,” said Marie.

He sat.

“William, I know you know our HR Director Mike Lamand, and our CIO Veronica Smith. This is our Chief Security Officer, Karun DasGupta.”

“Nice to meet you,” said William, still confused about what was going on.

Marie took a deep breath. “William, do you remember several weeks ago when you told us about the money missing from Tina Parker’s account?”

Boy, did he ever. Ms. Parker had called that morning, frantic over having lost almost a million dollars in the blink of an eye.

William nodded. “I’ve been worried sick about it. I must’ve called IT every day since it happened to resolve the issue.”

“Well, William.” The CIO paused.

“We have reason to believe you know something about that money.”
