Did you know it’s computer security day this Saturday, 30th November? Where historically this term only applied to those few who had computers, primarily government agencies, in modern times the term applies to securing other computer devices also, such as tablets and mobile phones. When we think of computer security, the core component is keeping data secure, whether this is bank details of one individual, or a server containing bank details of many.
Secure servers: the pros
This computer security day, we’d like to remind you about the need for physical security of servers and IT equipment. Server data breaches for large data centres can be devastating, incurring high fines and reputational damage.
While a lot of focus is put on cyber security for data centres, sometimes physical server security is not given enough attention. It’s all well having the most up-to-date protection against malware, but a thief can simply decide to break into your data centre and physically steal servers. Often, thieves have some level of insider knowledge, so it’s important to make sure you enforce security within members of your team, asking them to report anything suspicious.
