Physical security is all about protecting the company’s assets, facilities, equipment, and personnel. There are a lot of risks involved in every business and organization, which is why having a well-established physical security is very important. These risks may involve events or physical actions which can cause damage or serious loss to an institution. Such actions and events may include flood, fire, burglary, natural disasters, vandalism, theft, and terrorism.
Inadequate physical security can leave a company unprotected, which can result in millions of losses in damages should any of the above disasters strike.
