WHILE her business engages in physical security, Charlene Kang is often wondering about the state of online security.
The director of Vault@268 built the high-tech vault to accommodate the needs of those who missed having a physical vault to store their valuables.
With banks scaling down their physical presence and closing their safe-deposit box facilities, many people with loads of valuables were left high, dry and insecure.
Charlene’s business employed the latest in technology to keep the human element out of the 24/7 business.
But with the prevalance of hackers with lots of time on their hands, she has to constantly keep her security system updated.
Charlene was one of the panelists at the inaugural the Nth revolutioN, part of STORM magazine’s Keep It Going series. The topic of discussion was The Good, The Bad And The Ugly Of The Future.
At Vault@268, the provision of a good service comes with the need to maintain a sharp vigil.
While Charlene offers passive monitoring to ensure nothing goes awry, she alerts the audience to the levels of security in the public spaces that watches your every move.
