The Physical Security Policy is intended to ensure that physical computer resources and information resources are properly protected physically.
The Physical Security Policy applies to all company computer systems and information, including printed copies of information which may be sensitive.
Appropriate measures in regard to access control, environment, and protection must be in place to properly protect physical computer systems and information resources from physical harm or unauthorized disclosure. These resources include informational assets that are not computer related. All CodeREADr members are responsible for ensuring that information resources and computer systems have proper and adequate physical security.
Employees must adhere to the outlined protocol above and following, with special considerations for personal policies.
- Be alert and aware of suspicious characters in or near office premises. Report suspicious characters or activities as is appropriate and safe.
- Keep computer equipment in your possession secure at all times whether on organizational premises or away from the company premises.
- Report loss or theft of any sensitive documents, memory storage devices, or computer equipment to management and document it with appropriate forms.
- Be sure information assets being disposed of are disposed of properly in accordance with the Data Destruction Policy, if applicable.
Since proper physical security is critical for protecting the security of the company, employees that purposely violate this policy may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including denial of access, legal penalties, and/or termination.
