Security Measures to Think About

Everyone is weary of hackers and the damages that they can cause, as seen with the Heartbleed Bug and Shellshock Bash. But hacking attacks can also mean physical security breaches, as hackers do not always have to resort to intricate techniques to steal your personal information. A criminal can simply break into your house, car, or office and steal a laptop. If unencrypted, this can equal to major losses. There have been plenty of examples in the news about these physical security breaches, which is why it is extremely important to include a physical security plan in your overall IT Security Plan. Taking careful measures to cover all angles and control the physical access to data. More information on items to consider as part of your security plan can be found at benzinga.
