Next Reduce Risk: Six Vulnerable Points Enterprises Need to Consider-3 Next

Physical security

An effective physical security strategy must allocate resources relative to the most likely threats to the highest-priority asset class, which oftentimes includes IT infrastructure and the data it houses as well as other priority locations where sensitive data is stored and created.

Effective deterrence is not merely a function of the presence of physical security resources, rather it is the dynamic allocation and fine-tuning of resources relative to ever-changing risks and incidents. While traditional endpoint security concepts such as alarms and guards may be necessary, it is not a panacea to the physical protection of priority assets since an effective physical security plan must assess policies, procedures and implementation trends to enable more effective reduction of high-impact threats.

In light of recent incidents such as the Target breach and the Heartbleed bug, security remains top of mind for IT professionals. While most security solutions address only cyber-based threats, organizations need a more proactive and holistic approach to find, fix and protect potential vulnerabilities and reduce the likelihood of a security incident. In this slideshow, Armond Caglar, senior threat specialist at TSC Advantage, presents the six domains that every organization needs to examine to reduce risk.
