Physical Security and Cybersecurity Overview

Everyone knows that physical security and cybersecurity is an issue – businesses, government and individuals who rely on the Internet are constantly exposed to risk from cyber-attack. A recent report by PWC indicates that 81% of CEOs in Canada says cyber threat are their top business concern. Report from: PWc 21st CEO survey 2018: Canadian Insights.

Yet, due to the hostile threat environment, it's only a matter of time before all businesses will one day encounter a information or physical breach. It is no longer an option to only have a good and effective cyber-attack and physical security response plan.

Security breaches of any type and size can result in:

  • substantial financial losses;
  • negative impact on an organisation’s reputation;
  • erode customer brand loyalty; and
  • attract negative press or even threaten large corporate deals and acquisitions.

Every 40 seconds a company gets compromised by an external attack!

This course is targeted toward management staff who have the responsibility of leading operations teams in a large complex. They will learn counter-terrorism awareness and how to form, and lead a team of response officers. They will also learn how to manage a major incident and build a plan for the aftermath of such an incident.

Common myths and perceptions
about physical security and cybersecurity

My computer/server have the best antivirus installed

Cybersecurity: Although there are not many news of malware infection on Linux or Macs as in Windows, it does not mean it is safe. Malware coders just prefer and more interested to disrupt and attack Windows based workstations. Your antivirus is as good as the last update and there are no signatures for all the malicious codes in the world known to the majority.

Physical Security :  Having security guards at the door/gates is not sufficient,  security guards at best is a deterrent against entering the office premise and perform data/information theft and physical damage 

Only large corporations are more vulnerable to cyber attacks

Cybersecurity : While this is true, it is a known fact that the best method to access smaller enterprises is through their IT contractors and service providers because they have easy access to their computer network.

Physical Security : Visitors and Contractors who register their details before entry is only as good as a name database and will not be able to ascertain their ulterior motives  - if any

My password has far too many permutations to guess

Cybersecurity : There are no passwords that is too difficult to crack.

Physical Security: Internal staff are honest and loyal to the company, therefore there is no need to have doubts on staff

My network monitoring system will alert me of every problem

Not quite! The most common form of cyber attacks is via email “phishing attack”. Attackers uses the application layer to gain access to the network .This is only one of several reasons that trusting only on the network monitoring system isn’t enough to protect it. You need to have protocols in place to protect the access to the network. It starts with the simplest one, physical access.

Cyber attacks are always from the outside. All internal staff inside the company can be trusted.

Cybersecurity : Most emails received by internal staff have either an attachment or an external link to the outside network already exposing an entry into the company’s workstation

Physical Security : Disgruntled staff and contractors are known to be one of the weakness in any organisation to not be wary about within the organisation

My PCs and servers are encrypted

Cybersecurity : 90% of small companies usually share same account with super administrative privileges which leads to weak protection. This results in creating a backdoor for social engineering and accessing those systems without too much effort. Disgruntled employees are normally perfect candidates.

Physical Security : Competitors may have relatives or friends who may undertake commercial espionage activities within the organisation passing valuable strategic business plans and activities
