The safe where I work beeps when the combination is entered.
The safe combination keypad is at eye level and easily filmed from desks to the side of it.
You can even get a clue as the the combination, based on the time delay between each beep - shorter time delays mean the numbers are close on the keypad.

At a company I used to work for, they installed one of those a shipping container computer facilities, and had a biometric lock (thumbprint scanner) put on it, even after I warned him that it wouldn't be enough.
I managed to get a copy of my bosses thumb print off his coffee mug, unlocked the door, and called him to come and see.
He wasn't happy. He had a CAC card reader installed that also required a 6-digit pin code. It was much more expensive, but at the same time, much more secure.

1. Disable the alarm by entering a pin and unsetting the correct zone
2. Present your pass to a reader
3. enter you secret 4 digit pin.
4. do your stuff
5. sign out of the room with your card (if you don't you can't get back in)
6. reset the alarm
then you get to walk away, also someone in a different part of the country is watching you on a CCTV feed to make sure that you dont eat, drink, allow un authorised people in, remove equiptment etc.

I have great pains. Our application consists of a launcher and various dlls.
The launcher looks at the fileserver for newer versions of the dll's and copies them over if required, then the main process is run inside the dll.
It works nicely, or should, and means that users always run the latest version. Win-win. Except.
When we copy over the files to the file server from the build server, one of the dll's is marked as from an 'unknown source' and is blocked. I could go into group policies and disable the blocking but that would be for any other dll/exe that should be blocked.
For now, after each update I have to manually unblock the file. Does anyone have an idea of a better solution?
