Physical Security Penetration Testing
and Security Audit
Think Your Building is Secure? Think Again.
The Security of Your Sensitive Information Depends on the Physical Security of Your Facilities
Just like the company vice president quoted in the video above, most business owners, CEOs, CFOs, executives and even IT professionals think their building is secure. They're more concerned with external threats, but what they don't think about is the fact that their physical building may be opening them up to serious attacks, such as:
- Someone pretending to be a delivery person and gaining access to your facility.
- An employee getting into your data center and causing problems.
- People tailgating behind your authorized employees (having an authorized employee go through a secure door and the intruder walking in right behind them).
- Someone intentionally or unintentionally disrupting your connection to the Internet such that you lose the ability to send and receive e-mail, use web commerce, or access any other services you need.
- A person slipping valuable assets into the trash, whether it be a paper document or some type of electronic media, and coming back later at night to retrieve the valuable asset from the waste bin outside of your building.
- Someone breaking into your organization and stealing one or more computers, possibly a chief executive's laptop or even one or more of your servers. What do you do? Chances are this type of loss can be devastating to your organization!
How a Security Audit and Physical Security Penetration Testing Can Help
Whether you choose to have an audit of your physical security (handled remotely), or would actually like Mike to come out and perform physical security penetration testing (like in the video above), you will:
- Know you can rest easier because your physical security is better both inside and outside of your building(s) perimeter
- Feel more confident regarding your security-alarm configuration, video camera system, and other detective controls
- Find out if your locks at all entry points are sufficiently pick-resistant and secure. (The Physical Security Review examines many other preventative controls.)
- Feel more prepared for events such as a bomb threat, an angry person with a gun, lengthy power failure, severe weather events, and many other unforeseen threats to your organizational success
- Have the ability to show documented physical security examination results. This documentation puts your clients and prospects more at ease and demonstrates how you take physical security seriously – sometimes leap-frogging you ahead of your competition.
