Physical security: process first

February 2004 News

METAView audio briefing: As security organisations take a more holistic view of risk management and policy creation and compliance, it is natural to examine the intersection of physical and logical security. Information security examines threats and manages risk to information systems assets, with the high-level goal of providing CIA (confidentiality, integrity, and availability), whilst physical security can equivalently be viewed as managing threats to all assets. This includes not only the physical media upon which information systems rely, but also any and all physical assets, up to and including the health and safety of employees. This METAView audio briefing discusses the interface between physical and IT security.

Speakers: David Yockelson - executive vice president and director, Technology Research Services and David Thompson - senior research analyst

Running time: 7 min 3 sec.
