1. Most Compelling Lessons from the Course
Physical data is essential in protection of sensitive data, confidential information, information systems and personnel from any malicious individuals. The course explored the various means that one can use to take advantage of physical security to protect their assets. It includes ensuring the security and safety of the personnel from threats such as terrorism, and vandalism among other physical security threats. One of the most compelling lessons taken one could take from the course is the ability to use the natural landscape in enhancing physical security in a facility. For instance, if the facility is located in a desert, it can use the enhanced visibility the desert provides to increase security of the facility.
