Question Description

I’m studying for my Computer Science class and need an explanation.

Topic:Physical Security Best Practices for an IT Data Centers (include Safety, , Software, • Using the topic above, write a research paper which includes between 5 and 10 References/Cited-Works (a majority dated 2015 or newer) of which 2 must be Peer-Reviewed. • Highlight the Peer-Reviewed works (in Yellow) on the Reference/Works-Cited last page. • Once the paper is completed, add an Overview/Executive Summary to the start of the paper. • The Overview must contain at least one Hypothesis. • For this paper, a Hypothesis is a statement you believe to be true based on the research you conducted. As an example: “Small businesses are less likely to provide adequate physical security”.

There is an increasing need to protect online infrastructure in the 21st century especially the present day
data centers. These have been deemed the prime targets for malicious intruders such as hackers and
identity thieves. In this era of cloud computing characterized by internet based data aspects which are
handled from remote locations, data is being processed, stored, deposited and backed up at central
points in serves located at certain buildings. With the advent of such practices there is no question that
cyber threat continues to be a pressing issue especially in financial institutions. While many
organizations have suffered the adverse impacts of cyber threat, banks and other financial corporations
such as microfinance institutions have remained vulnerable and seriously affected by cyber threat.
According to O’Malley (2019), financial institutions are attacked 300 more times compared to other
businesses. Because banks rely on digital networks for their operations their customers and data centers
have been common cyber threat victims. Some of the threats they have suffered include denial of
service attacks, hacking, phishing, cyber-attacks and viruses attacking individuals (Staal,2015).
At the backdrop of these occurrences banks have taken measures to protect themselves from physical
threats. Such measures revolve around safety measures such as site perimeter, special rooms whose
access are only reserved for authorized personnel, CCTV cameras situated at strategic locations to help
locate physical threat, fire prevention and adequate aeration . Even though banks have continued to
suffer cyber physical threat, they have leveraged on a number of security layers which to a greater
extent have protected them and their data centers from physical malicious intrusion.
In this regard this paper is based on two hypotheses as follows: hypothesis one , banks have
implemented state of the art physical threat barriers which when emulated by other businesses can help
to not only identify priority physical threats but also ensure that they are resilient at all times .
Hypothesis two: the physical threats that face banks are a perfect analogy for computer systems - both
banks and computer systems contain valuables that are likely to attract the attention of criminals who
mainly seek to steal .Therefore by placing

Introduction

There is an increasing need to protect online infrastructure in the 21st century especially
the present day data centers. These have been deemed the prime targets for malicious intruders
such as hackers and identity thieves. In this era of cloud computing characterized by internet
based data aspects which are handled from remote locations, data is being processed, stored,
deposited and backed up at central points in serves located at certain buildings. With the advent
of such practices there is no question that cyber threat continues to be a pressing issue especially
in financial institutions.
While many organizations have suffered the adverse impacts of cyber threat, banks and
other financial corporations such as microfinance institutions have remained vulnerable and
seriously affected by cyber threat (Mitic, 2017). According to O’Malley (2019), financial
institutions are attacked 300 more times compared to other businesses. Because banks rely on
digital networks for their operations their customers and data centers have been common cyber
threat victims. Some of the threats they have suffered include denial of service attacks, hacking,
phishing, cyber-attacks and viruses attacking individuals (Staal,2015; OLUOCH,2018).
At the backdrop of these occurrences banks have taken measures to protect themselves
from physical threats. Such measures revolve around safety measures such as site perimeter,
special rooms whose access are only reserved for authorized personnel, CCTV cameras situated
at strategic locations to help locate physical threat, fire prevention and adequate aeration. (Zahoor
et al .m 2016)Even though banks have continued to suffer cyber physical threat, they have
leveraged on a number of security layers which to a greater extent have protected them and their
