Common false sense of security

We have been coming across so many bad security designs that look secure but actually nothing more than a piece of fragile decoration in the eyes of professionals be them good or bad willed.

For example:

1. Having a big metal lock but the surrounding supporting frames were flimsy 2mm aluminium plates. It would take anyone two to three minutes using simple hand tools to break the plates that hold the lock.

2. Installing these simple keypad locks that costs about HKD $300. All one would need is a block of magnet the size of a thumb to gain access in literally one second.

3. Installing the magnetic locks on the unsecured side (outside) _and_ with the power cabling exposed without proper cable containment. A screw driver would enable anyone to dismantle the lock and gain access.

We cannot afford to be complacent about our security.
