Bridging the gap between cyber security and physical security

A graphic representing a bridging gap.

Security threats are on the rise. But, while cyber security has received attention at the board level and led to the creation of the CISO role, physical security is often owned by departments with no clear reporting lines to the board, which means that maintenance activities, new security initiatives and physical security strategy are allocated smaller budgets. But failed physical security controls in organizations can lead to theft, information leaks and serious injuries. Industry standards, regulations and legislation have emphasized the need for building resilience with a connected security approach, and that leaders should bridge the gap between physical security and cyber security by creating collaboration between these two areas, optimizing security assets and prioritizing both at the board level.

But here’s the thing: manually converging your cyber and physical systems isn’t the answer either. These systems weren’t created to work together, and many dangerous loopholes can occur when we try to singlehandedly create one united security front. That’s why technology specifically designed for cyber and physical security convergence is instrumental in this process.
