What strategies are there to avoid terrorist incidents?

Topic: Theory


March 11, 2011

what kind of strategies /safety precaution are recommended to avoid terrorist incidents?

baber - Pakistan



Many countries have used concrete barricades to prevent terrorist vehicles filled with explosives from getting close enough to damage a government building.

Unfortunately, that is not practical for preventing terrorists from bombing groups of innocent people or attacking other buildings, such as houses of worship.

The major weakness of terrorist groups is that they need to organize and meet to plot their cowardly deeds. Informants, police and observant citizens can alert authorities of plans and possible activities of terrorists.

It is a very difficult problem to handle, since the goal of terrorists is often to destroy civilized society.

Lawyer using access to secret information

Topic: Reasons


December 9, 2010

The homeland security and the lawyer (divorce I believe) were using finanical audits to gain secret entrance to medical records and for financial security to make money and to use the private companies as an coerced method to gain access to the building itself and to close it and the illustrative censorship program was part and parcel the reason it was used and it was used to advertise bawdy house sales, sexual in nature and to intimidate the voters and so they advertised living off the proceeds of a crime and it was a way to get their own way in general. There was a rat line installed. Sexual exploitation and to challenge the mainstream seemed to be the heart of the matter and where it still remains to date.

ie The group used it to sell the ideal to the public voters that their use of technology was going to be used come hell or high water and that they did not have to be punished as a resultant of their criminal actions.

Karen - Canada



Unfortunately there are people who use clever methods to try to make money illegally. But also, there are companies who hold such things as financial records and financial records that are very careless in securing that information.

This is why it is important for individuals companies and the government to make sure that information is secure from criminal elements and that there are laws to prosecute those criminals.

Compare anti-virus software

Topic: Reasons


April 21, 2010

comparing Anti-virus software:anti-virus software is a product that is availablable by commercial purchase and freeware a study and analysis of two drand of anti-virus software either commercial product or freeware and find out what methodologies of that particular anti virus software uses. write a brief explaiing the strength and weakess of their approach and comparing any differences.

hauwa - Pakistan



The major anti-virus software products are Norton, McAfee, and Kaspersky. There are a few other brands available.

Since bad people are constantly inventing new computer viruses, these companies spend a lot of money keeping up to date with the latest threats. Free anti-virus software may work fine but also may be up to a year out of date with the latest threats.

You can check the websites of the major software companies, although they do not like to tell how they combat viruses, since it would alert those who write the code.

i want to know the full meaning of access control

bamidele - USA



In security, access control means that you have ways to limit or control who enters a building or some location in a building.

Large buildings want their access control automated, such that locks are opened by a timer or a security guard. Even having to show a badge to enter a building is a form of access control.

I am sorry, but we do not offer a course for security guards. You can use our lessons to help you in gaining information.

Many companies have training for their security guards. A good idea is to talk to security guards who work in banks and companies to find out where you could get training and what requirements are needed to get such a job. Also check with security companies in your area for information.
