Your computer network, much like a good story, is comprised of several elements. An IT environment is a lot like a web; each individual piece works together to create the digital tapestry that allows you to conduct your business.
Behind the scenes, your workstation is connected to your company’s information through various network resources (the individual threads of Charlotte’s web). While your workstation is made up of various pieces, it communicates with your network through something called a NIC (Network Interface Card). You’ll be able to see where the spiderweb begins since this is where your network cable plugs into.
