Cybersecurity is essential in today’s world. So important that so many conversations amongst security professionals have moved to focus mainly on cybersecurity. As important as this may be, it is very important that we don’t forget the basic kind of security too, which would be physical security. Physical security is made easy nowadays with the countless forms of tech solutions for creating safer and more secure facilities and buildings that are harder to access by criminals or any unauthorized people. Today, we will take a peek at a couple of the most common physical security vulnerabilities and explore some ways you can address them.
Old and Beaten CCTV Systems
The fact is, any kind of optical security system is a serious investment for companies to make. Because of time, money, and the necessary infrastructure that is needed to install systems, it is tempting to stick with what we know: a standard CCTV video camera system. However, any easy upgrades to more modern systems, or more context-specific security systems like driver cameras, can be one of the most simple methods of upgrading the security technology. Investing in some intelligent security systems that do most of the work for you will also make for a much easier and more effective security system. This can provide a more productive workspace too.
Physically Protecting Your Assets and Data
Today, we normally think of cybersecurity as the end-all-be-all way for dealing with protecting our assets and data, but there is still a physical component to consider. If your facility has any employees with some sensitive data on their computers or laptops, all of these devices have to be stored away securely. Keeping data centers locked down is also important, as physical access can increase what a thief is capable of by a huge amount. Don’t forget how crucial it is to add physical security that is associated with reliable data protection.
New and Improved Bottlenecks
One of the most defined aspects of physical security is cutting back on the overall flow of vehicle and foot traffic in certain areas to form bottlenecks where security protocols are allowed to do their work. This is why something similar to an access control system still makes plenty of sense. They’re able to look at whether or not someone has the proper authentication to be in an area without impeding on the natural traffic flow. An under-vehicle inspection system is effective at scanning vehicles for odd items, all while keeping the traffic flow moving at a quick pace.
