1. Physical security is when items, objects, and areas are protected from unauthorized usage. Primary threats for physical security includes extreme temperatures, gases, liquids, living organisms, projectiles, movement, and energy anomalies. Sabotage, vandalism, theft, and quality of service deviations can all causes attacks on the organization by harming the physical aspects of a network (Chapter 9, Page 469). 2. General management’s role in physical security is to enforce policies and standards to all of its facility. IT management is responsible for the overall environment of equipment and the implementation of this general rules and policies. They should make sure that the building has proper temperature conditions, authorization to access to rooms, proper power conditions, and overall cleanliness of equipment. Information security’s role is to check that proper implementation of the other two group is correct (Chapter 9, Pages 469-470). 3. Physical access control is specific to the people of the organization by controlling their access to particular company resources while logical access is the controlling of the organization’s assets. Some of the same technologies that are used to control physical access also control logical access but ultimately, they serve different purposes (Chapter 9, Page 470). 4. Secure facilities includes entities such as: walls, fences, gates, dogs, guards, IDs, locks/keys, mantraps, alarm systems, computer rooms, wiring closets, and interior walls and doors (Chapter 9, Page 471). The primary objective of designing a secure facility requires adherence to rules and regulations(Chapter 9, Page 470). Some secondary objectives are enhancements and protections such as the ones listed above (Chapter 9, Page 470).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
