Definition Edit

A physical security policy is "[a] document that defines which physical items need to be protected and at what level."[1]

Overview Edit

"Physical security policies are intended to ensure that the facilities (e.g., buildings, rooms in buildings, unstaffed locations) that house equipment and employees are protected from burglary, forced entry, damage, destruction, environmental threats, ill-intentioned insider threats, and a host of other threats. These threats may result in loss of information; loss of operation; harm to workers; and damage to the businesses' reputation, image, and ability to operate."[2]
