Network engineers tend to be very network-focused when it comes to securing their infrastructure. We think in terms of firewalls, access-lists, intrusion prevention, DMZ’s, bogon lists, etc. Do we perhaps overlook physical security (you know, what’s going on in meatspace) because of our myopia? While making sure the doors are locked is arguably not our primary responsibility, I believe physical security still deserves careful consideration.
