Is convergence between physical and information security something that should be welcomed?


In the last couple of weeks I have looked at a fairly fringe but relevant area to the end of security that SC covers, physical security.


This week I visited the Ifsec show in Birmingham NEC to get an idea of ‘how the other half live', and among several halls stuffed with surveillance equipment, fire detection materials and enough CCTV screens and cameras to make feel like I was in a giant high street full of branches of Dixons, there was enough mention of information security to keep me interested and make my journey worthwhile.
