A lighter post to end the week, on variations of “perimeter” security. The word, perimeter, has a variety of meanings, as the Advanced Perimeter Systems blog notes. There’s the Neptun Deep Perimeter on the continental shelf of the Black Sea. And shots from the perimeter line on a basketball court. Not to mention the Perimeter Institute, “a world-leading centre for scientific research into foundational theoretical physics.”
So, when you’re considering how to protect your own perimeter, however vexing a task that may be, be comforted by knowing that you’re in a long line of company – that of a word with many meanings.
