Which of the following are solutions that address physical security

Physical Security Physical security is very important specially when securing a data center. Review this topic to address the following:

  1. What are the physical considerations that need to be addressed for the data center?
  2. Why it is important to have an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) in a data center?  
  3. What are the UPS specifications that data center manager should consider when evaluating a UPS solution?
  4. What are the physical security measures that an organization should consider to protect the laptops?


  • Location: The location of the data center needs to be considered during the choosing of the data center. There can be an in-house or offsite option. In the case of inhouse, the servers are present very near but the bill maintenance is high. In the case of offsite, there is a need to check stability.
  • Reliability: The reliability of the power source, cooling involved in the data center. Checking of redundancy system.
  • Security: Security of the data center deals with protecting the data centers from malicious attacks.
  • Uninterruptable data centers are those that provide continuous and stable power to the data center such that at any point in time, there is no issue with the power supply.
  • Selecting the UPS depends on the various things like capacity needed by the datacenter, factors of reliability, space needed inside the UPS and the backup time.
  • So, depending on the need, UPS can be selected.
  • Workstations: Workstation computers should be properly secured because the attack can trigger them
  • Policies: There should be policies and security measures that ensure the prevention of attacks.
  • There should be a restriction on the use of USB cables etc that can trigger the vulnerability.
  • All data coming and outgoing should be monitored.
