Hello, and welcome to our first weekly missive for 2010! It’s nice to be back. And I’m not just saying that. (Well, I am, but I am also being sincere.)
We haven’t kept quiet over the Christmas and New Year period – we’ve continued to post stories, unlike other security news sites, including two very special edition Songs About Security: one on Christmas Day, and one on New Year’s Day And this week’s security song is by Stealer’s Wheel. Check it out, why dontcha?
Today we’ve also got the countdown of our top 10 best read stories of 2009. Can you pick the winner? Read the story and you will find out. You will!
Well-known UK industry figure and Security Excellence Awards judge Peter French has received an MBE in the 2010 New Year Honours list. Congratulations, Peter!
Also on the site is our latest Bench Test. This time we’re looking at the Axis Q6032-E network dome – and our reviewer is VERY enthusiastic.
Other stories include Iain’s Top 5, on hybrid systems; a retail crime surge in the BRC’s Annual Survey; and our regular advice column from the Access Control Doctor.
It’s all for your delectation. Enjoy!
