A feast of security news and opinion-type stuff

It’s a feast of security opinion, news and insight on info4security today. Delicious!

Take, for example, SMT Online editor Brian Sims‘ latest Editor’s View – forthright invective covering everything from London’s new Met Commissioner, to identity theft, to a call for transparency from the Security Industry Authority. Get stuck in!

We’ve also got a camera technology launch from Dedicated Micros; and a new camera from Sanyo that features something called a ‘retina-morphic’ algorithm. Fancy sounding!

MacAfee says that businesses are losing more than US$1 trillion in Intellectual Property due to data theft and cybercrime. That’s a ridiculously high number.

And don’t forget the magnificent couple of conferences we’ve got coming up. In March, there’s Securing Educational Establishments, which looks like it will be an absolute beauty. Then, in May, there’s the big hitter: the IFSEC 2009 conference. It’s the place to be.

IP mind change, and mobile fingerprinting

Cripes! It’s another thrilling edition of the world’s best-loved and most respected daily security news service blog thing. Except for yesterday, which I missed. Sorry.

Today, I shoot my mouth off about the state of IP security and the increasing need for hybrid systems. Classy!

We’ve also got a very interesting piece from John Elliott on the mobile fingerprinting schemes becoming popular with police forces.

Our CCTV Doctor tackles a question from a reader which deals with the legalities of access to CCTV images within an organisation. Just who can watch it?

And as an exciting bonus, if you happen to be in London today, make sure you pick up a copy of the Evening Standard newspaper. Within it – on page 47 of early editions – is a comment piece by SMT Online editor Brian Sims about the appoint of Paul Stephenson to the Commissioner’s role at the Metropolitan Police. We’ll link to it when it appears on that publication’s website.

Yoink. Head over to www.info4security.com, and also www.ifsec.co.uk. Wahey!
