I am a Service Delivery Manager at a medium-sized tech services company.
I am researching PSIM (Physical Security Information Management).
What are the main use cases and benefits of products that fall under this category?
Thank you for your help.
Physical security of an information management system assures security by implementing protective controls to a location that hosts your most confidential data. For example, when you access data centers physically to access servers, storage, routers, switches, etc. Similarly, when you are accessing the location (warehouse, IT department, finance or HR department) with malicious intentions to discover the possibility of a targeted attack which could be by inserting the infected USB drive, stealing confidential documents, taking pictures, finding the ways to access the data centers from elevators to the reception to the data center. ISO27001:2013 explains in detail what protective controls must be there to ensure physical security like access cards, port security, identification, CCTV, Biometrics, preventing WIFI access outside the location, fire alarm system, assembly points, etc.

1. License models are not communicated transparently which makes planning complicated. You have to talk to multiple people at multiple vendors in several meetings to fully understand the cost scaling factors. That is quite time-consuming. You can overcome this when you just dictate price limits - yes you can actually do that.
2. Planning and conducting a PoC can be a challenge. Depending on how a PoC process is being setup by the vendor. You can overcome this if you ask for the PoC Procedure Plan right from the initial contact with the vendor and use it for internal planning.
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions differ significantly from firewalls. While both security solutions are integral components of cybersecurity infrastructure, they have different capabilities, functions, and roles.
