    I think that realistically, the feature offers about the same security risk as an old streetmap combined with a location map like those provided by facilities like, say, Disneyworld.

    But as seen recently in the media, it wouldn't take much of a spin to incite public outrage towards google. Fear sells.

    Good article.
    That, and there's no office politics till they hit about 57-58, unlike human interns who "get that way" around 12-15...

    It seems my firm provides Logical Security Services. To this end, I will have to put out an ad for several Vulcans or something.

    Sorry, the print copy came today. I do not see a link to the story on their website.

    Google Earth- even street view- could be viewed as a security tool. A tool in the sense of spreading disinformation about your facility/site to anyone that may be using google earth to case it. Think dummy access points etc.

    Unless your Dad lives in one of the 5 citys Google has up and running in street view - you were looking at Google Maps. Look at the Street View option

    While I focused on the terrorism aspect, one my big "things" about Google Street View is that in most cases, the information's already out there. All Google did was make it easier to find.

    But on the flip side of a coin, if I were a terrorist, they just made my job a hell of a lot easier in terms of staking out the place. I definitely think that showing where the security cameras are is a big hazard. So this definitely has my concern raised.
