Traditional physical security
Traditional physical security describes security measures that are designed to deny unauthorized access to facilities, equipment and resources and to protect personnel and property from damage or harm (such as espionage, theft, or terrorist attacks)
Physical security involves the use of multiple layers of interdependent systems which include CCTV surveillance, intrusion detection, security guards, protective barriers, locks, access control protocols, and many other techniques.
But nowadays a lot of these a lot of these systems are (hyper) connected, making them vulnerable to other risks. Also, they more and more protect the physical aspects concerning your data or information. Physical security becomes more and more an IoT (internet of Things) discussion.
This is why TWO4C takes a broader approach. Linking physical security, people and procedures together.
IT / Cyber / Information security
IT security, also known as cyber security, information security or computer security, is the protection of computer systems or data from the theft and damage to their hardware, software or information, as well as from disruption or misdirection of the services they provide. Also it can resolve in damages when it comes down to privacy or intellectual property losses.
Cyber security includes controlling physical access to the hardware, as well as protecting against harm that may come via network access, data and code injections. Also, due to malpractice by operators or users, whether intentional, unintentional or accidental, IT security is susceptible to being tricked into deviating from secure procedures through various methods.
The field is of growing importance due to the increasing reliance on computer systems, mobile systems and the Internet, wireless networks such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, the growth of “smart” (security) devices, including your business tools, smartphones, cctv camera’s, access control systems and tiny devices as part of the Internet of Things.
Knowing it’s all linked together, and everyone looks within their own domains, TWO4C takes on the broader approach, linking IT security, people and practices together.
Balancing between many worlds..
means you have to understand & speak
A security baseline is a set of basic security measures based on “best practices” that are implemented at an strategic, tactical and operational level in an organization. But is this actually enough? What and where are the real risks? Where to start? How to integrate IT and physical security? How do you create a corporate (dymanic) blueprint for your organisation? Let us help you so you only have to make the choices. We do this process together, but in the end our goal is that your organisation can do this by itself.
In general, compliance means conforming to a rule, such as a specification, policy, standard or law. Regulatory compliance describes the goal that organizations aspire to achieve in their efforts to ensure that they are aware of and take steps to comply with relevant laws, polices, and regulations. Take the impact of GDPR, are you ready? This example not only comlpies to your IT related processes, but also to your processes and physical security systems. Let us help you understand what and how to do this.
Security controls are safeguards or countermeasures to avoid, detect, counteract, or minimize security risks to physical property, information, computer systems, or other assets. They can be classified by several criteria like preventive, detective or corrective controls. A similar categorization distinguishes control involving people, technology and operations / processes or in the field of information security. Such controls protect the confidentiality, integrity and/or availability of information. But they all have things in common. Do you see the whole picture? We do, you only make the choices.
Business continuity and resiliency planning is the process of creating systems of prevention and recovery to deal with potential threats to a company. Any event that could negatively impact operations is included in the plan, such as supply chain interruption, loss of or damage to critical infrastructure. For example a major machinery or computing /network resource. Your organisiation and your people are physically and digitally on a on a daily basis. Lucky it almost never leads to a negative impact, but when it does are you in control to continue?
