A Public Service Announcement...

Since it’s a well-known fact that all the senior executives of all of the “Fortune 500” companies are regular readers of this blog [koff-koff-bullshit-koff], it is worthwhile pointing out the fact that due to improvements in workplace security postures, executives’ private residences are becoming more tempting targets for the bad guys.

Hence, these suggestions:

  • Get an unlisted phone number

  • Use a P.O. box (or a private mailbox service) to receive personal mail

  • Vary your routes to and from work on a daily basis

  • Install an alarm system and motion-sensor lights

  • Keep doors and windows locked at all times

  • Report suspicious persons and encourage your neighbors to do the same

  • Never admit solicitors or strangers into your home

  • Make sure your home’s floor plan is not on the Web (builder’s website, or real estate agency)

  • Develop and practice a security plan and emergency procedures with all members of the household

These steps are equally valid for single women.

We now return you to your regularly-scheduled Internets.
