Exempt From Security
12/01/2010

Here is a review of who can and cannot bypass airport security, according to the Transportation Security Administration and congressional and Obama administration aides.

Members of Congress: Congressional leaders traveling with a security detail the speaker of the House, the House minority leader, the Senate majority leader, etc. are allowed to bypass security checkpoints when flying on commercial jets, according to the TSA. All other members of Congress are expected to stand in line and wait.

Other government officials: President Obama, Vice President Biden, and Cabinet secretaries who travel on government aircraft or with security details Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates do not pass through security checkpoints before flying. Cabinet secretaries who use commercial aviation and travel with bodyguards may bypass security, according to TSA. Cabinet secretaries traveling without protection and other senior government officials flying commercial must be screened.

Other dignitaries: Former presidents flying commercial with Secret Service agents and some foreign ambassadors also traveling with guards are exempt from screening, according to the TSA and congressional aides.

Members of the military: Members of the military traveling in uniform must pass through security checkpoints but are not required to remove footwear unless it sets off a metal detector, according to the TSA. The agency also allows airlines to issue special-access passes to military family members who are not flying but want to say goodbye or greet a loved one at the gate.

Cyber Monday Shopping Risks
11/27/2010

Some of the greatest bargains of the holiday shopping season are offered online on Cyber Monday. Of course, cyber criminals and malware developers are also gearing up for the biggest online shopping day of the year, so you better have your defenses up before you jump online and start making purchases.

The clock is winding down to the 2010 holiday shopping season. Black Friday--the day after Thanksgiving that marks the official kick-off of holiday shopping is one week away. Granted, it has lost some of its appeal as retailers have spread bargains out over the entire month of November to try and be the first to capture your coveted shopping dollars.

The Monday following Thanksgiving weekend is Cyber Monday--a day of much holiday shopping and little productivity as people return to work and spend all day surfing the Web for online deals.
