Security is no guarantee, vigilance is!

Going through one of many portable drives I came across this video I made.  The company shall remain nameless but it was probably made around 2005 in a vacant office within the building.  I remember that we wanted to create an educational and fun video around the physical aspect of cabled laptops and the false sense of security they provide.  During that time there were a rash of thefts and the response to the thefts were to buy the cables and mandate that they be used.  Alas, the tools of our security became another challenge to the “Gone in 60 Seconds” crew.  Forget the fact that you can pop the top of the work surface and most of the cubical prairie dog population will ignore or have their iPod full blast.  This was much more subtle and effective.  During lunch or before/after hours, it was the perfect physical exploit.  Now Oddjob and Jaws had a physical asset to resell with the potential for access to valuable data that could be sold and resold in secondary markets.

The funny thing is that this is still as relevant today as it was back then…  Security is no guarantee, vigilance is!
