Course Overview
Hi there everyone! My name is Dan Lachance and welcome to my course, Implementing Physical Security. Over the years I've seen some pretty lax security controls including server room doors that are always left open simply due to improper HVAC that can't seem to keep the room cool enough. This is a security no-no since server rooms definitely house sensitive equipment and data that might be stored on disk arrays and if those disk arrays aren't encrypted, it's pretty easy for someone to steal the disks and access the data. Digital data assets need to be processed and of course stored on physical equipment, housed in buildings, physical buildings. So not only must technological security controls be put in place to secure assets, but also physical controls need to be in place to restrict facility access, especially to server rooms and data centers. So some of the major things that we will cover in this course include identifying workplace security issues, implementing physical security controls, and implementing environmental security controls. By the end of this course you'll understand how to implement physical security controls to protect digital assets from locked server room doors to ensuring equipment doesn't run too hot. I hope that you'll join me to learn about the importance of physical security controls and how they can be implemented within the Implementing Physical Security course here at Pluralsight.
