At CyberSolace, we understand that physical security is just as important as cybersecurity in protecting an organization’s assets. Physical security is important for cybersecurity because it can help to prevent unauthorized access to systems and data. If an intruder can physically access a building or data center, they can potentially bypass electronic security measures and steal or damage sensitive information.

Additionally, physical security can help to prevent physical damage to IT equipment, which could compromise data integrity or make it more difficult to recover from a cyberattack.

Here are some specific examples of how physical security can help to improve cybersecurity:

  • Access control systems can be used to restrict access to sensitive areas, such as data centers and server rooms. This can help to prevent unauthorized individuals from gaining access to sensitive systems and data.
  • Video surveillance can be used to monitor activity in and around sensitive areas, which can help to deter and detect intruders.
  • Physical security training can teach employees how to recognize and report suspicious activities, which can help to prevent attacks.
  • Building management systems (BMS) are critical infrastructure for modern buildings, controlling everything from HVAC systems and lighting to security and access control. As BMS systems become increasingly connected to the internet, they have become attractive targets for cyberattacks. A successful cyberattack on a BMS system could have far-reaching consequences, including:
    • Physical damage to a building if control systems are manipulated or disrupted.
    • Data breaches if sensitive information is accessed or stolen.
    • Service disruption if critical systems are taken offline.
