In the world of IT security, the focus for many companies has been just on cyber or network security. Most people don’t give an extra thought to the physical protection of their expensive hardware and premises. But, we’re here to make the very important point that businesses need both physical security and computer network security in a combined, concerted defense against all threats to their IT infrastructure.
When business owners realize that they’re only covering half their security contingencies, they start looking around for security camera sellers and other additional security services to supplement their computer network security.
Well, no longer do you Buffalo businessmen and women have to shop around for physical security services, because, through our partner Powered Protection, we can now offer a Total Security package that’s feasible and within reach of the average small business owner!
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.
Physical security is often overlooked — and its importance underestimated — in favor of more technical threats such as hacking, malware, and cyberespionage. However, breaches of physical security can be carried out with brute force and little or no technical knowledge on the part of an attacker.
Physical security has three important components: access control, surveillance, and testing. Obstacles should be placed in the way of potential attackers and physical sites should be reinforced against accidents, attacks or environmental disasters. Such hardening measures can include fencing, locks, access control cards, biometric access control systems and fire suppression systems.
Second, physical locations should be monitored using surveillance cameras and notification systems, such as intrusion detection sensors, heat sensors and smoke detectors.
Third, disaster recovery policies and procedures should be tested on a regular basis to ensure safety and to reduce the time it takes to recover from disruptive man-made or natural disasters.
In the interests of pairing-up physical security and computer network security for a “Total Security Services” offering, Buffalo Computer Help has partnered with Powered Protection to provide our clients with a more fully-rounded security protocol, with commercial security options that include:
