There is no cyber security without good physical security. Physical security, however, turns out to be more complicated than one might think. This talk offers suggestions and warnings to IT people about physical security based on the work of the Vulnerability Assessment Team at Argonne National Laboratory. Topics to be covered include locks, tamper-indicating seals, access control and biometrics, the insider threat, and security culture/climate. There will also be warnings about some common security blunders, and a discussion of what cyber security professionals and physical security professionals could learn from each other.
