Incident Response

Tailoring Transformation

THE retail banking industry is undergoing a significant transformation accompanied by increasing regulatory compliance requirements, consumer demands and industry consolidation—all while working to provide the best in customer service and maintain operational efficiency.

Hands Up

Today, three out of four bank robbers are caught within 18 months of their crime. FBI and local law enforcement efforts are aided by financial institutions using current technological advancements along with specialized training and practices by bank employees.

An Eye On It All

IN an age when the need for increased security services is at an all-time high, managing security information has become more efficient, flexible and powerful.

Editor's Note for Monitoring Supplement

Just when you think technology has hit the apex, another pinnacle of knowledge is thrown into the mix, and the latest and greatest becomes the next generation. The same is true for monitoring.

Bursting Out

THE past year has seen an explosion of technology in the world of video surveillance. Industry professionals have been selling video technology for years, but the recent advances in technology and price reductions in hardware have opened the door for more dealers to get involved with video sales.

On Alert

SECURING the flow of oil from offshore platforms, land-based drilling rigs and pumping stations across miles of pipeline and infrastructure is a top priority for the government and the petroleum industry.

Fusion Frenzy

U.S. airports with one or more checkpoint areas, security officials have probably never thought of themselves as ID managers.

First-Class Upgrade

PROVIDING adequate airport security has become an ongoing debate of national importance after being plunged into a post-9/11 world. Who can forget the eerie sight of an empty sky during the immediate days following the infamous attack in the nation's history.

Speaking Encode

TODAY'S world is faced with every-evolving technologies -- a world of ones and zeroes. Digital communication and storage networks have greatly facilitated access to information in every technology sector, and video security is no exception.

Right On Track

SEPTEMBER 2006 marked the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center, sparking widespread debate on whether the United States is any safer today than it was on that fateful day in 2001. Since 9/11, much has been done to promote greater vigilance of both foreign and homegrown terrorist activities. But until another successful or unsuccessful terrorist attack, the nation may never know the complete answer.

Flying High

NOWADAYS, it takes much more to have a safe flight, and airports are strengthening security to ensure passengers do travel safely.

Diagnosis: Security

JUST as physicians recommend that their patients obtain treatment early before a condition worsens, Intermountain Healthcare (IHC) also is addressing the issue of security before problems occur.

Take the Heat

THE security of critical infrastructure and facilities is vital in today's world. With recent advances in technology, there are more choices on how to protect facilities from crime, terrorism, sabotage and intruders.

Phone Home

A reliable communication system is the backbone of any school security program. The placement of emergency phones on a college campus has long ceased to be an issue.

Security Goes Shopping

LOSS prevention has become as important to retail profits as products, pricing and promotion. Retailers can preserve -- and often increase -- profits simply by investing in systems that reduce shoplifting and internal theft.

A Shot in the Arm

The Last Word

Modern Lockdown

CONSTRUCTED in 1962, the Warren County jail, located in Lake George, N.Y., was designed to operate -- in feature and function -- like all correctional facilities of that day and age, manually.

Ask The Expert

THE lights are bright and the noise, at times, is deafening. Money changes hands at breakneck speed, and the place is full of people, even at 2 a.m. on a weekday. That's life in a casino.

Stop! Thief

ADVANCEMENTS in removable media, online storage and file sharing have empowered end users to transmit, collect and access data from virtually any location both inside and outside the corporate network.
