I have some staff members that have to perform penetration testing. The odd thing about my staff is that I have engineers in locations but there are often just 1-2 per location and they all pretty much sit by sales or HR (non-techies).
So when we start talking about penetration testing, we might talk about backdoor entry, plugging holes, how deep we can penetrate, the talk can get rather hairy!
For the non-techie they might think the talk is vulgar but is perfectly reasonable in our conversations. What is the expectation of this talk at the workplace and what could we do to not offend anyone?
Note: I want to be clear this isn't about acting like middle schoolers. This is just have talks on the phone and then my guys hearing snickering from others around, and then their own set of jokes. I don't think any of the people have been offended but it does worry me because it only takes one grumpy person to make a deal about something.
