Security systems with a difference – also for OH&S, tracking and safety with and without physical internet

Wondered how to get some surveillance happening without an internet connection?

We have the answer… An example of this might be a construction site which is a mobile container and moves site to site. Security on these premises is paramount not only for theft, but health, safety and tracking. With the ability to have internet on 3G/4G, wired infrastructure is a thing of the past.

Surveillance made simple

Having security cameras in your business is one thing, but storing and retrieving the data, is another. So many clients find that when it comes time to actually reviewing the video and/or audio footage, it is either too hard to find or isn’t there.

Let us work with you in giving you a demo on how this technology works. Going to a retail store and buying a kit may not be enough in a court of law.

Do you have any privacy? – In Google We Trust – Four Corners

I was out at a good client of ours and was discussing security, when the HR Manager from UBEECO, Angelo G, was kind enough to share a link from Four Corners on Privacy concerns he had seen earlier that week.

It is absolutely amazing (and scary) how much we are being tracked for advertising harvesting and other factors. It’s all OK unless someone wants to use this data maliciously , such as data or identity theft.

Watch this episode to see just how much data is being kept on us, even when not browsing or using our phones or devices.

Another item you can try if using Firefox is COLLUSION. (Update: 8.3.2016 – now called Lightbeam )It is an addon and will show how many sites know what you are doing when visiting only one site.

To give an example, I went to abc.net.au and ninemsn.com.au, look at the results of how many sites know I was actually there (when I only visit the 2 of them)

If you would like to try and see for yourself, download the lightbeam addon for firefox here

Thanking you

WEP wireless security

View Online

Alert Services (Advisory)
7 June 2013

Australians continue to use out dated encryption

Businesses and home users are advised to avoid using the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) security protocol for wireless connections.

Once commonly used, the WEP security protocol is today considered broken and should not be used.

Although most router/modem manufacturers and Internet Service Providers currently supply and support devices with higher levels of encryption, many computers and networks continue to maintain wireless connections via WEP.

If you still currently use WEP, your wireless connection is vulnerable, information you send via this method is easily accessible via sniffer tools downloaded from the Internet.

You should check your current settings and if you currently use WEP, choose an alternative security protocol for your wireless connections.

How to find your wireless security settings:

Windows
For Windows based computers, you can check the level of security being used on a wireless network by viewing Network Options in the Control Panel. From here, select your wireless network and open the Properties for that connection. The exact name and location of these options will vary between versions of Windows. A security tab or menu should offer a choice of security protocols for your device.

Apple
For Apple based computers, you can check the level of security being used on a wireless network by clicking the Network icon in the System Preferences. Select your connection on the left hand side and the security level will be listed next to the network name.

How to update your wireless security:

Updating wireless security varies depending on the make and model of your wireless device. Refer to your manual for individual product details.

Modern modems, routers and wireless devices typically offer a range of encryption protocols. Wireless encryption should be set to WPA2 if available (or WPA if not).

There can be various types of WPA2 encryption, with the simplest version being WPA2-PSK. This uses a network name and requires a password. Most computers and smartphones can connect to WPA2 networks with minimal reconfiguration.

If your wireless device does not support any encryption other than WEP, it is strongly advised to update your equipment.
