Physical Office Security 2019

The first aspect of security is Physical Office Security, this is related to anything that doesn’t have to do with our IT infrastructure from maintaining a secure office (being mindful of who in the office at any given time, especially when it comes to guests) to not discussing company business while in public (e.g. at a restaurant or party) or on social media.

Steps that can be taken to secure the Physical Office Space are:

  • Asking people you don’t recognize if you can help them
  • Not allowing unauthorized people into the office follow you through the back doors when using your key fob
  • Requiring guests to sign-in and NOT leaving them unescorted
  • Destroying documents and other media with sensitive data.
  • Using the shredders in the office (or at home if you work remote).
  • Not leaving portable devices in public places
  • Motion-sensing cameras in the office
  • Servers and routers are to be kept in locked room(s)/closets
