Cybersecurity seems like it gets all the attention in the security world these days and for good reasons, too. With all the hacks, information stolen, and data lost, cybersecurity is definitely something to take seriously. But what about physical security efforts? The importance of physically securing your assets should be taken just as seriously as cyber threats.
Physically protecting your assets includes protecting your people, property, and data from physical threats. We just wrote a series on how you can physically protect your data and server rooms. Catch up on How To Create A Controlled Access Policy, 4 Best Practices For A Secure Server Room, Sonitrol’s Certified Solution To Regulating Climate In A Server Room, and What Happens When Your Server Room Is Unsecured. Below are ways you can ensure the physical safety of your building and people in 2018.
Physical Security Is Just As Important As Cyber Security
Criminals are getting smarter so your technology and investments in physically securing your building should be getting smarter as well. If your current security system isn’t protecting you from fires, vandalism, and burglary and theft, it’s outdated and not serving you well.
In addition to these systems being in place, it’s equally important to regularly test and inspect them. Here’s important information on how to test and inspect your fire alarm system. Your emergency evacuation plan should also be reviewed and tested on an annual basis to remind employees of policies and ensure everyone is informed on what to do in case of an emergency.
