Staging security at the National Theatre
Step through the stage door of the National Theatre on London's South Bank and you will find yourself in a corridor with a bright yellow floor. At the heart of the security stance is a much greater knowledge of who is doing what on the theatre's network - no matter where they are. "Organisations that do have a high turnover of staff usually have a high risk of insider threat," said Neil Thacker from security firm Forcepoint, which helps the theatre secure its digital borders. For many of the most likely security disasters, the NT has created tools that can quickly fix a problem, such as a till in a restaurant failing, or that can diagnose and repair a key part of the theatre's infrastructure. It is a situation the National Theatre is steadily working towards, said Mr Tunnicliffe.
