Physical Security

What is Physical Security?

Physical security is the protection of personnel, hardware, software, networks and data from physical actions and events that could cause serious loss or damage to an enterprise, agency, or institution. This includes protection from fire, flood, natural disasters, burglary, theft, vandalism, and terrorism.

Why Physical Security is Important?

Attacks could be carried out digitally through the network or physically at the site. The optimum goal of cybersecurity is protecting data and equipment from any damages or theft, and physical attacks is one of these threats.

The risk from physical threats could be unintentional, such as fire, and the role of physical security is to ensure a company is ready for such accidents by installing firefighting systems, for example. At other times, the risk is intentional, such as an attacker trying to access the data center, and the required action here is to have physical access control. So, the role of physical security is to ensure closing all security gaps.
