Physical security is data security. No less critical than timely patches, appropriate password policies, and proper user permissions are considerations of access controls, locks, and alarm systems. You can have the most hardened servers and network, but that doesn't make the slightest difference if someone can gain direct access to a keyboard, or worse yet, march your hardware right out the door.
The CORE Group provides specialized consulting that focuses on physical security solutions. Training, blended penetration testing, and innovative tools... for clients who seek security on all surfaces.
