Physical Security: Lock Doors, Tail Gating and Secure Physical Docs

Physical Security: Locked Doors, Tail Gaiting and Secure Physical Docs Welcome to Cybrary’s CompTIA A+ course. Today’s Module examines Security, and we begin with a discussion about what physical security means and look common security prevention methods and the reasons they are important. We’ll discuss physical security such as doors to server rooms, security cables for laptops and other pieces of electronics rather than leaving them unsecure, the people accessing these resources are people who are authorized to do so and have specific permission to access the specific locations hosting those resource, as well as physically securing computing devices to prevent forced entry of the device thru its case. We also explore how security breaches occur such as with tail gaiting, how those unauthorized entries occurs, the role of social engineering in security breaches and why it’s a concern.
