In this video we discuss physical and environmental controls within the cloud. The purpose of these controls is to protect both equipment and services. Policies and controls governing the protection of physical assets consist of:
- Temperature and humidity guidelines
- Cable management
- Aisle separation and containment
Policies governing the location of the physical environment are important to mitigate against natural disasters and political unrest. HR policies and controls are also important to manage the behavior of personnel working within the facility.
