  • 7. Read below to find out how a data center is designed to withstand everything from corporate espionage to terrorists to natural disasters. Sure, the extra precautions can be expensive. But they're simply part of the cost of building a secure facility that also can keep humming through disasters. Build on the right spot. Be sure the building is some distance from headquarters (20 miles is typical) and at least 100 feet from the main road. Bad neighbors: airports, chemical facilities, power plants. Bad news: earthquake fault lines and areas prone to hurricanes and floods. And scrap the "data center" sign. Have redundant utilities. Data centers need two sources for utilities, such as electricity, water, voice and data. Trace electricity sources back to two separate substations and water back to two different main lines. Lines should be underground and should come into different areas of the building, with water separate from other utilities. Use the data center's anticipated power usage as leverage for getting the electric company to accommodate the building's special needs. Pay attention to walls. Foot-thick concrete is a cheap and effective barrier against the elements and explosive devices. Avoid windows. Think warehouse, not office building! If you must have windows, limit them to the break room or administrative area, and use bomb-resistant laminated glass. Use landscaping for protection. Trees, boulders and gulley can hide the building from passing cars, obscure security devices (like fences), and also help keep vehicles from getting too close. Use retractable crash barriers at vehicle entry points. Control access to the parking lot and loading dock with a staffed guard station. Use a raised gate and a green light as visual cues that the bollards are down and the driver can go forward. In situations when extra security is needed, have the barriers lift-up by default, and lowered only when someone has permission to pass through. Plan for bomb detection. For data centers that are especially sensitive or likely targets, have guards use mirrors to check underneath vehicles for explosives, or provide portable bomb-sniffing devices. You can respond to a raised threat by increasing the number of vehicles you check—perhaps by checking employee vehicles as well as visitors and delivery trucks. Limit entry points. Control access to the building by establishing one main entrance, plus a back one for the loading dock. This keeps costs down too. Make fire doors exit only. For exits required by fire codes, install doors that don't have handles on the outside. When any of these doors is opened, a loud alarm should sound and trigger a response from the security command center. Use plenty of cameras. Surveillance cameras should be installed around the perimeter of the building, at all entrances and exits, and at every access point throughout the building. A combination of motion-detection devices, low-light cameras, pan-tilt-zoom cameras and standard fixed cameras is ideal. Footage should be digitally recorded and stored offsite. Protect the building's machinery. Keep the mechanical area of the building, which houses environmental systems and uninterruptible power supplies, strictly off limits. If generators are outside, use concrete walls to secure the area. For both areas, make sure all contractors and repair crews are accompanied by an employee at all times.

  • 10. know from our own data that subscribers whose phone do get infected can lose up to 100 Euros a day from MMS being sent from their phone by the virus. Solutions To prevent mobile spam and viruses becoming a problem for their subscribers, Indian network operators must ensure they don't solicit spam. Operators also need to take a leading role in the development of built-in network security to protect mobile phones, and prioritize customer satisfaction above potential ready-money revenue generated as a result of spam and viruses. To ensure protection from mobile spam and viruses, operators must also secure their network. This way, not only known viruses, but also anomalies within the network can be detected, isolated, and disinfected, enabling network immunization. Having security on the network also means that employee-specific policies can be set. For example, an employee may not be allowed to download content which can be considered out of line from their business pursuits, while others may be prohibited from accessing the mobile Internet altogether-a similar approach to the one some organizations are already using for their PC infrastructure. The constant evolution of spammers' techniques, combined with the continually growing mobile telephony industry, means that the battle for consumer trust is only just beginning-and mobile operators have to make sure they are competing effectively. A new walk-through airport lie-detector made in Israel may prove to be the toughest challenge yet for potential hijackers or drugs smugglers. Tested in Russia, the two-stage GK-1 voice analyzer requires that passengers don headphones at a console and answer: ”Yes" or "No" into a microphone to questions about whether they are planning something illicit. The software will almost always pick up uncontrollable tremors in the voice that give away liars or those with something to hide, say its designers at Israeli firm Nemesysco. "In our trial, 500 passengers went through the test, and then each was subjected to full traditional searches," said chief executive officer Amir Liberman. "The one person found to be planning something illegal was the one who failed our test." The GK-1 is expected to cost between $10,000 to - $30,000 when marketed. A spokesman for Moscow's Domodyedevo Airport, which is using a prototype, said "the tester (lie detector) has proved to be effective and we are in principle ready to use it". The September 11, 2001 hijacking attacks have led to a slew of innovations designed to boost airline security. Lieberman said several countries had expressed interest in the GK-l. "Unlike conventional lie detectors .such as the polygraph, this is minimally invasive, requiring hardly any physical contact," Lieberman said, adding that the first stage of the test takes between 30-75 seconds. Those that fail are taken aside for more intensive questioning and, if necessary, are searched. Lieberman said around 12 percent of passengers tend to show stress even when they have nothing to hide. "Some may feel nervous because they have used drugs, while having no intention to smuggle drugs," he said. "The whole thing is performed in a low-key manner to avoid causing anxiety." Reuters
