Don’t Forget Physical Security

I was in Toronto last weekend. My hotel had a great view of the CN Tower… and some office building.

With a pair of binoculars, I could sit and screen-watch several offices pretty clearly.

We spend a lot of time thinking about elaborate hacks. I think CSI: Cyber and other media have kinda brainwashed even those of us that work in the field.

You need to cover the basics first. Physical security is taken for granted because it’s the opposite of abstract.

Can I get sensitive data through a pair of binoculars? Walk up with a Bash Bunny and compromise the whole network?

Close your blinds. ☺️
