Neglecting the general appearance of a building and its surroundings can attract vandals, leading to an increase in crime and antisocial behaviour that can easily spiral out of control. Corps Security’s CEO, Peter Webster, explains the principles behind broken window theory and suggests ways that facilities managers can avoid their premises becoming a target for criminal activity.

 

John Davies

It seems that stories of employees ‘going rogue’ are always in the press – but how can companies stop them before they make the headlines? Do you even know if you have a rogue employee? If you’re a large multi-national organisation, the laws of probability aren’t in your favour.

In a number of cases, Internet-attached private systems are not always maintained in an up-to-date state and, as such, are vulnerable to exploitation by mischief-makers and, of course, their cybercriminal peers.

With summer in full swing, employees across the country are heading out on vacation; likely topping their list of items to pack, mobile devices such as iPads, iPhones, Androids and BlackBerries.

Varonis looks at the implications for organisations that get it wrongand gives advice on how to protect your information in a digital world.

What Happened?

On Sunday July 10th, 2011 the News of the World published it last edition.  This paper had been publishing for 168 years and was the top selling Sunday newspaper in the UK. The closure came following revelations of how the newspaper had allegedly obtained personal information using illegal methods such as phone hacking.  What does this teach us about privacy and information governance?
