Best apps for security professionals

Committee member Nick Karas provides the following - Accessing the Internet to gather information continues to grow rapidly. People now expect everything to be connected, from their real-time public transport schedule, to the voting system, to stock availability in physical world stores.

More than 4.3 billion people around the world are using the internet.  Well over half of the world’s population is now online, with the latest data showing that more than 360 million new users came online for the first time in 2018 – that’s nearly 1 million per day!

In Australia we are ahead of the game when it comes to adopting Internet technology.  App downloads alone totalled 749 million in 2018, with a $1.2 billion value.

There now seems to be an App for everything, or an upgrade to an App that aims to improve our life in one way or another.  In fact, there is even an App to organise your Apps!  On the surface, many Apps seem similar and often they sprout the same information, capabilities and interfaces but rarely do they end up delivering the same results.

Having run a small to medium security business for two decades I am always open to advancements to assist in running the business smarter, and adding value to our clients.  I often find myself reading up on the latest App releases and in several instances would be lost without my favourites for both business and personal use.
