The "Physical" Security of Cybersecurity

We get so focused on encryption, identity access management, secure data transmission, etc., that we forget we have a PHYSICAL security component to our craft.As a former police officer for 20 years, the holidays brought with it happy times/sad times. People would go shopping for gifts.  They would load up their cars, and make one more store stop… and return to their car emptied of their newly purchased gifts.  They were in such a hurry, they forgot to lock the doors on the car when they ran inside.  Upon return, the car is empty.  Now is the time that we all need to take pause, and take stock of our SITUATIONAL AWARENESS.  That doesn’t just mean in the cyber-realm, but in our daily lives.
