Ah, Friday – glorious, wonderful, ever-lovin’ Friday. It’s a sure sign the weekend’s on its way – and it means the thrill of reading The Security Week is here once more.
First up, it’s me. Hooray. I’m going on about the need for a change in the outlook of those involved with IP security, and I’d describe it as ‘a particularly incisive piece of opinionating’ if I were not too modest to do so.
We’ve also got our old pal the CCTV Doctor providing some advice on the legality of having your CCTV images viewed by any old Tom, Dick or Harry in your organisation. Useful!
Oh yes – it’s trumpet blowing time. Brian Sims, illustrious and respected editor of SMT Online, has been sought out by the London Evening Standard to provide some industry perspective on the appointment of Paul Stephenson as Met Police Commissioner. Kudos, to you, Brian. Kudos.
There’s a fascinating story on a truly superb conference, fully endorsed by I4S, and going by the name of Securing Educational Establishments. You’ll be intrigued to know that it is all about securing educational establishments. If it was a tin, it would do what it said on itself. Kind of.
Today’s Song About Security comes courtesy of The Clash. You may have heard of them. Enjoy the delicious dubtasticness. It’s a personal favourite.
As a reward for making it through the week, here are two things you may or may not feel are appropriate gifts. One is an example of refrigerator-based alcohol humour. The other is simply a small Mexican wrestler doing cool stuff. Enjoy!
