Physical Penetration Testing

The most basal form of Information Security is physical security. A failure of the physical security controls can immediately result in the theft of a laptop, access to an internal network, access to a wiring closet, or even access to a data center.

Physical Penetration Testing may include such activities as:

  • Attempting to gain access to critical infrastructure or Executive area in a Control Center and/or Service Center;
  • Attempting to gain access to any satellite facilities/branches.

Tailgating (similar to Piggybacking) is one means to compromise physical security by following somebody through a door meant to keep out intruders. Tailgating is actually a form of social engineering, whereby someone who is not authorized to enter a particular area does so by following closely behind someone who is authorized.
