ABSTRACT
The article advises security executives to find ways to add more value to existing security systems without additional significant costs. Systems that are already in place in the premises can be used in a smarter way. Microsoft servers already have the infrastructure and algorithms to support the use of smart cards for physical access. Company computer networks can be programmed to detect when a contractor or a guest is plugging his computer from a room in the company's premises.
