This woman "did not have a plan B", do you?

Watch this intense video of the psycho at the Florida school board meeting firing at the superintendent who supposedly signed the papers leading to his wife losing her job.

Shows that you've always got to have an escape route. Be it with information security, driving down the road, or attending a meeting such as this.

Of course, this was a situation in a government school building where only the criminals can have guns. Zero tolerance at it's finest. I'm just glad everyone else in the room was (relatively) unharmed.

Metrodome collapse video: nothing's really secure

Check out this video of the Metrodome collapsing over the weekend. Let this be a reminder that no matter:
  • how much engineering goes into a system
  • how much attention to detail the contractors pay during construction
  • how much insurance coverage you have
  • how detailed and "water tight" your contracts are
  • how many fail-safe features are available "just in case"
...that bad things can and will happen. Be it in a building or on your network there's no guarantee of safety and security.

The real question is: what are you doing today to prepare for such an event? How are you going respond rather than react when something does happen so you can minimize the impact to your business? The clock's ticking.
