While physical and cyber security is often adequately addressed by controlled access to data and co-location centers, the greater vulnerability is posed by inside security breakdowns. Most successful hacks are the result of inside jobs whose perpetrators are authorized to have network or locational access to facilities. The physical fiber network is a vulnerable aspect of security and includes the fiber pathways and conduits that can be accessed directly through maintenance holes as well as through communications lines inside facilities. In addition, bad actors who have access to servers, drives and storage devices have the opportunity to compromise the security of stored data. This discussion session addresses how to fully integrate sensors on cabinets, servers, fiber networks and floors, and RFID to trigger videos and alerts in conjunction with real-time analytics can defeat inside hack jobs.
