Security ‘Rings’ Enable Internal Protection


To be sure you’re as protected as you need to be, think of site security in phases, working inward. There’s the perimeter (fencing), access spaces (vehicle barriers and personnel checks), door locks and, inside, computer and other electronic protections.

SecurityInfoWatch lays all this out nicely, noting that “The concept that is commonly referred to as ‘Concentric Circles of protection’, involves the use of multiple ‘rings’ or ‘layers’ of security. The first layer is located at the boundary of the site, and additional layers are provided as you move inward through the building toward the high-value assets.”
