Retail Systems Research, in conjunction with ADT, has just released the results of a survey of retail crimes in 83 small-to-large multi-national retailers.

According to an article in Monday’s The New York Times, the U.S. military is struggling with the same issue security operators in the public and private sectors face: How to manage and prioritize the significant amount of surveillance video being collected by today’s video systems?
The article, Military is Awash in Data from Drones, reports that Air Force drones — remote controlled spy planes — have collected nearly three times as much video over Afghanistan and Iraq last year than in 2007, amounting to roughly 24 years’ worth of video if watched continuously. This amount of video is only expected to increase as more drones are added and some take-off with multiple cameras in tow (there are even plans for some to record video in 10 ways at once.)
