A SENSIBLE SECURITY POSTURE CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE

I feel deep sorrow when I hear of a life that could have been safe had they had the right information at the right time. It can boil down to a life or death decision, practicing security awareness is that critical.  The unfortunate death of a New Zealand tourist in the moderately upscale Saint Andrew neighborhood in Kingston, Jamaica, highlights the point I’m trying to make.

By simply remaining calm, asking the armed robbers to remain calm and handing over what the criminals wanted, he could have walked away from the ordeal with his physical integrity intact.  Instead another life is lost, yet again by a mobile phone.  Think about it; as Bob Marley says in one of his song “if you know what life is really worth…” my advice to you is, adopt a security posture; learn how to prevent becoming a victim and how to act when you do become one.  Your life is precious and irreplaceable; physical objects are not.
