I recall the time I got asked to go through my carry-on. As I was teaching, I had
two computers, chargers for both and my phone, my phone, presentation
controller, laser pointer, a bunch of USB drives with extra content for the
candidates, extra cables, and more. None of that got a second glance from the
screeners. What they were interested in was a giveaway vendor promo pen with a
USB drive in it (which I had, in fact, forgotten was in the bag ...)

Well, it would let them kill 2 birds with 1 stone --- embroidering so much onto the bag would probably make it bullet-proof... Man Wink

 

The BoD might decide to go ahead with this. Then again, they should focus on the portal & support issues...

Re: (ISC)2 Merchandise Store

 

 

 

This also brings to mind something from my days as a kid in the 90s. While I was travelling from Riyadh to India, airport security in Riyadh flagged my check-in baggage. The item they detected was a metal toy used to detonate plastic / paper caps, similar to a cap gun. It would have be thrown up & the inserted caps would detonate when it hit the ground. For appeal, it was shaped like the nuclear bomb 'Little Boy.' 

 

Anyways, once I explained what it was, they let me go. A friend of my Dad who had accompanied me to the airport told him what transpired, saying 'I was caught carrying explosives.' Later, I clarified it all to him...

 

The truth was I had carried a lot of those paper & plastic caps in my check-in baggage --- back then, I saw them as mere toys & wasn't familiar with airline restrictions --- but the airport scanners obviously didn't pick these up.  Man Wink

 

Relating this to IT Security, it would be like a monitoring system throwing up false alerts while failing to detect a present threat...

Is the merch store really selling a "Fugitive Backpack"? @amandavanceISC2 you might want to reconsider pulling that item or re-branding it to something more appropriate for this profession.


Unfortunately, I don't think they can re-brand it.  If you look on the OGIO site, that is the official name of the bag, so they need to be careful with copyright, etc. (From Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/OGIO-Fugitive-Pack/dp/B015JXJA9Y).
