PHYSICAL SECURITY: What Every Business and Home Owner Should Know
What is Physical Security?
Physical security measures are designed to protect buildings and safeguard the equipment inside. They physically prevent unwanted people from entering and unauthorized individuals having access to a building. Without physical security plans in place, your office or building is left open to criminal and unauthorized activity.
Types of physical security threats including theft, vandalism, fraud, and accidents.
Security is key in keeping technology, data, property and people safe. A comprehensive physical security plan should include countermeasures against intrusion.
Intrusion detection, power protection and fire protection are some of the components to preventing physical security threats in the modern workplace.

Physical security framework has three main components:
Access Control and Intrusion Detection
Maximizing physical security means limiting actions and controlling what an individual can access within sites, establishments and facilities. Limiting actions and controls that can be changed or modified by someone means also optimizing the strength of the security. Intrusion detection works fluidly with access control to ensure that no unauthorised individuals can access areas they are not allowed to access.
The most common type of surveillance is a closed circuit television (CCTV). With the use of high definition cameras and wide fidelity bands. It can record different activities in real time from the combinations of areas it is installed. Surveillance can also be carried out via UAV’s.
Would-be criminals always tend to reconsider their behaviour when they see a CCTV camera. Criminals and burglars are aware that video footage will be used as very strong evidence if they are caught breaking the law.
Once a physical security system is installed, it is important to run a testing phase. This is to assure that everything is working properly and the target areas are included and well-monitored. A good physical security is a preventive measure and incident response tool. That is why it is vital to ensure all is working to make sure it is functional and fully operational.
