There has been a lot of hype over the new Corona virus pandemic and certainly the media was playing a big role in all this, but governments around the world did they part too, as an unseen mass hysteria has been created. It was end of February, I traveled back from a business meeting in Dublin to London and the local Newspaper cover page only had five words written in huge letters covering the whole page “The killer virus is here!” At that day, the first infected person in Ireland was confirmed.
Traveling for work can be sometimes a welcome alternative to sitting in an office day in, day out. But anyone who travels frequently will tell you that it has also it’s downsides. For one, it can be very tiring to constantly travel, after all you are not a tourist, you have work to do as anyone in an office has too, but you also have planes to catch, you do calls and online meetings in taxis between hotels and airports.
There are certainly already many blogs about security advice out there, so you might wonder why did I think the world would need another one? Well, I have spent now some 25+ years working in the security industry and counting, mostly protecting businesses, politicians, corporations. Whenever I was able to work with ordinary people, helping them to protect their homes or teaching them how to defend themselves and their loved ones, my work had a REAL MEANING! I felt that I was doing something good and useful and that made me feel good in return.
