  1. I think that having more CCTV’s is a good idea as long as they have a “data retention” policy of like 30 days then destroy the data. Also adobe reader should have been sandboxed a long time. Now with AT&T. Just using the last 4 digits is a weak security policy. AT&T should require the acct# which is on your bill or require the full ssn#.
