Physical security is an important but potentially overlooked consideration when implementing network security. In this course, you'll explore what's meant by physical security, how you can implement physical security risk countermeasures, and what the motivations are for doing so. You'll start by defining physical security. You'll then investigate the critical decisions you must make when planning for physical security. Next, you'll delve into various types of physical security risks, such as tailgating, and the methods to handle these. Moving on, you'll outline the layers of security controls that can be added to increase physical security and recognize the challenges security personnel face in ensuring physical safety. Lastly, you'll study how the security principles examined in this course can be used in facility and site design, including internal and perimeter security controls.
