Submission + - When Information Security Gets Physical

llamalicious writes: An article on Dark Reading gives a bit of insight into the hidden dangers of engaging in corporate security "dirty-work". A seemingly simple task provides two security contractors with an unpleasant awakening to the realities of attempting to covertly retake company property from a crooked employee.

From the article: "Our success was short lived when he turned and saw us walking out with his machine. His polished, professional demeanor changed for the worst when he saw us trying to leave the building. He raced toward us and began trying to pry the laptop from my colleague's hands, while cursing and calling us unprintable names."
