Don't trust anybody!All employees are crooks and thieves, and they not only steal the pencils, but your invaluable results. Burglars couch everywhere. The inconspicuous car in front of your building is full of bugging devices.
Safes are needed (equipped as described in 23.), all computers need the most expensive protection software. Internet access highly restricted. To control your environment, purchase spy software, video cameras, and guard service. Don't use outdated techniques such as keywords, pins, keys or magnetic cards, both for doors and computers. Biometric recognition technology is the minimum for access authorization. Additionally the whole realm should be equipped with high-security doors, electric fences and spring guns, plus electromagnetic and acoustic shielding.
Don't trust the normally trustworthy persons such as family members or best friends. They could be bribed and trick you. Try to avoid encounters as far as possible. Don't answer any work related questions.
Don't attend any seminars, conferences or symposia. Don't publish your results. You are not vain and remember, the others are crooks and thieves.
If all protective measures fail and the enemy finally intrudes into your realm, an auto-destruct system should be installed for the whole. Best is a inconspicuous red switch on a remote-control or a simple voice entry such as "yourname 4-7 Alpha Tango". A silent 5 seconds countdown is normally enough and sequence abortion not necessary.
