Physical security means protecting your information assets, such as computer files, emails, and databases against loss, damage, or compromise due to physical threats. Such threats can include

  • Theft of a laptop or a USB device
  • Criminals breaking into your office to steal documents from your office
  • Theft of an employee’s access card

Physical security also covers guarding information assets against natural disasters, such as fire or earthquake, accidental damage or compromise.

To counter such threats, organizations deploy a combination of physical and electronic safeguards. Common measures include security guards, alarms, anti-theft devices, intrusion detection, two-factor authentication and employee training.

Along with administrative safeguards, physical security standards should form an essential part of your organization’s security plan to protect your information assets.

Your physical security framework needs to cover three standards – 

  1. Access control
  2. Surveillance 
  3. Testing

The success of your security plan depends largely upon how effectively you control a person’s access to your facility, data centers, and employee workstations, including laptops and mobile phones.

The surveillance standards deal with the monitoring of your facilities, data centers and workspaces. Along with this, you’d need to monitor how your information assets are disposed of. 

And finally, the testing standard. This standard deals with testing the resilience of the physical security measures put in place.

During the last year, we have seen a majority of the workforce shift to home offices. Thus, the physical threat landscape is different than a few years ago.

For organizations that use in-house servers and have an on-site workforce, physical security largely deals with guarding entrances, controlling access, proper disposal of data, and disaster management. Major threats include malicious outsiders and insiders who might try to steal or sabotage information assets.

Along with this, criminals also keep an eye on garbage disposal for improperly destroyed documents and electronic devices.

For organizations that allow work from home, physical security measures need to cover the safety of laptops and phones as well. Employees need to be trained to guard the assets they use.
