Secure Server Rooms

People obviously always go on about system security, but a lot of the time they fail to discuss physical security or take this into consideration when formulating security procedures.

We are currently moving all of the servers located in my office at work and around various other parts of the office into an air conditioned secure room. At the moment, all of the servers are accessible to anyone who walks into our I.T office.

At the moment, the physical security aspect is based more on trust. But as we know in this world, you can't really trust many people! Some would have you believe that you can only really trust yourself, which is true!

At the moment the air con keeps our office cooler, but it is a bit load still with all the fans.

It will be a bit of a daunting task moving the equipment, but should be fun in the process and the end result will be better in all respects. I'll post some pics soon of how it currently looks and what everything is like after the move!
