One of the major risks in today’s increasingly mobile environment is the physical theft of devices. From an information perspective, mobile devices contain all sorts of sensitive information and, depending upon the identity of the user, may even allow access to other, more sensitive resources, such as database servers or network security controls. In this video, learn about the use of hardware security controls, such as cable locks, safes, and locking cabinets.
- [Narrator] Security professionals…spend a lot of their time protecting…the confidentiality, integrity, and availability…of information.…And that makes sense because information…is often an organization's most valuable asset.…One of the major risks in today's increasingly…mobile environment is the physical theft of devices.…From an information perspective,…mobile devices contain all sorts of sensitive information,…and depending upon the identity of the user,…may even allow access to other more sensitive resources,…such as database servers or network security controls.…
Security professionals often use encryption…to protect the contents of devices against theft.…Even if a thief gains hold of a lost or stolen device,…he or she won't have access…to any of the sensitive information…stored on that device if it's encrypted.…This limits the damage incurred by a loss or theft.…Sure, you've still lost a computing device…worth hundreds or thousands of dollars,…but you don't have the additional loss…of sensitive information or access.…
