BTB-Recommendation #1. Key Rotation

Do not forget to rotate your security keys. At least twice a year rotate the facilities’ operational keys with the emergency keys so that they wear equally.

    Hey, have you seen this news article?
    New details about Michael Jackson’s Death Emerge
    I was wondering if you were going to blog about this…

    Thanks, how often do you suggest we change the locks?

    Depending on where the lock is located. If the lock is in the Administrative Areas of a facility (outside of the secure inner perimeter) and it is a normal deadbolt lock - it should only be replaced if it is worn out and/or a key is locked. The, however, only the inside tumblers need to be re-keyed.
    If it is a “jail house - brass key lock” it would have to re-keyed if a key was lost.
    I hope that I have answered your question - if not email me back.
    Have a good-one,
    Bill

    Michael: At this point I don’t think I will be doing much on Michael Jackson’s passing. Now, that can change if some of the rumors flying around prove to be true. Thanks for stopping come back soon. Bill

    Hello Bill,
    It’s good to know that you continue to do what you do best - give us food for thought and encourage us to stay alert and alive. These articles are exceptional and extremely timely, given the nature of the times we live in. Thank you for helping us to be proactive and not reactive as we’re so accustomed to doing. (A side note, one of our retired friends, Don Kessler is battling lung cancer. Please keep him in your prayers). Thanks again and blessings to you. deloris
