The quality of that verification and the quality of the service that’s being provided. And by that I mean, so what do we mean by certified? In this quote, many times an organization says, I have 200 hard drives. The vendor comes, scans the serial numbers, gives that back to the organization, says, I certify that I did this. Is that really a reasonable amount of proof that they’ve handed you an inventory back? There was no reconciliation done. There was no witness of it being performed. So these things really matter when it comes down to having to answer to a regulator or, you know, looking at, did this event actually happen or not?
