Today we look at an aspect of information security that is often overlooked by technical folks. It is the physical security aspect of our job. Are you aware that every year at DEFCON there is a lock picking contest? In this session, we dive into various techniques and methods that we should be considering when it comes to providing physical security around our datacenters. We discuss some of the recent trends in this area, such as IP video surveillance, and also discuss resources that can assist you in coming up with a good overall physical security plan. (No locks were harmed in preparation of this session.)
