Yes, information security.

Templates, I haz them. I even have an on-staff tech writer. My problem
is consultants who blather and simply cannot write. It is dragging
down our report writing process and creating inefficiencies. Like any
greedy capitalist pig, i need to find away to squeeze more out of less
and complete reports faster. So my thought is if I can get these
people writing better in the beginning it will reduce the load on our
tech writer and produce better overall content.
