Editor's note

May 2008 News

Despite the warnings seen posted in suburbs by the likes of neighbourhood watch organisations and a general awareness among residents, hijackings, armed robberies and break-ins are still taking place at homes and in driveways all too often - we all know of at least one family that has been subjected to this type of crime. This month's feature is on residential security and I trust you will find information in the feature that will help prevent such senseless acts happening to you.

The other issue affecting all of us these days is Eskom's ongoing loadshedding exercise. We have some useful tips for you from IT as well as security experts regarding this as well.

Enjoy the read, be safe and if you are travelling to the UK to attend Ifsec, I will see you there.
