The convergence of information and physical security

I’m often asked for advice on organising security functions. One increasingly common question is should information and physical security be merged. I have lots of observations on that, having served my apprenticeship switching many times between the two functions.

I’ve just posted a brief analysis of some of issues associated with merging information and physical security on my Infosecurity Europe blog. It’s essential reading for anyone contemplating (or aiming to resist) such a merger.

Good reading, concise article. For smaller organizations, it's often easier to let the datacenter worry about the physical security and just concentrate on plugging the holes in the apps, OS and firewall.
