Physical and Logical Security Convergence

Physical and Logical Security Convergence


Powered By Enterprise Security Management

Government and companies have already invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the convergence of physical and logical security solutions, but there are no books on the topic. This book begins with an overall explanation of information security, physical security, and why approaching these two different types of security in one way (called convergence) is so critical in today?s changing security landscape. It then details enterprise security management as it relates to incident detection and incident management. This is followed by detailed examples of implementation, taking the reader through cases addressing various physical security technologies such as: video surveillance, HVAC, RFID, access controls, biometrics, and more.

System and security administrators as well as operational managers for physical security and information technology departments in public and private organizations are the primary audiences for this book. Additionally, it is valuable for any individual or organization that needs the technical knowledge to converge the historically disparate professions of information technology and physical security. Finally, it is valuable to any group desiring greater operational efficiencies and a reduction in overall risk in regards to: hackers, terrorist, organized crime, nation-state threats, malicious insiders, malicious competitors, and other criminals.
