Locks, bars, alarms, and uniformed guards? This is what most people think of when they think about security service
While these countermeasures are by no means the only precautions that need to be considered when trying to secure an information system, they are a perfectly logical place to begin. Physical security is a vital part of any security plan and is fundamental to all security efforts without it, information security, software security, user access security, and network security are considerably more difficult.
Physical security refers to the protection of building sites and equipment and all information contained therein, ranging from theft, vandalism, natural disaster, humanmade catastrophes, and accidental damage. It requires solid building construction, suitable emergency preparedness, reliable power supplies, adequate climate control, and appropriate protection from intruders.
Physical security service is often overlooked and its importance underestimated in favor of more technological threats such as hacking, malware, and cyber espionage. However, breaches of physical security can be carried out with brute force and little or no technical knowledge on the part of an attacker.
Physical security has three essential components: access control, surveillance, and testing. Measures include fencing, locks, access control cards, bio metric access control systems and fire suppression systems. Also, physical locations should be monitored using surveillance cameras and notification systems.
Technology Infrastructure LLC is very experienced with all of these measures and will assist you in designing them into your location, expansion, or project. Some of the guidelines we follow when designing physical security service are:
