This article addresses security concerns of several companies. Washington D.C.-based Business Roundtable's deep and growing commitment to security has been shown with the naming of Frederick W. Smith, chairman, president and CEO of FedEx Corp., as chairman of the Roundtable's Security Task Force. The Security Task Force addresses ways that the private and public sectors partner to improve security. It's created a Crisis Communications Toolkit that offers best practices for communicating with employees, customers and neighbors during a crisis. Open Security Exchange (OSE) of Piscataway, N.J. has issued technical specifications for the convergence of physical and cyber security systems, named PHYSBITS. As a result of this effort, OSE has actively participated in the launch of the standards committee of the Security Industry Association for data modeling.
