Physical and environmental security controls are implemented to protect the facility housing system resources, the system resources themselves, and the facilities used to support their operation. The physical protection of State information resources, facilities and personnel is essential to the effectiveness of the overall security support structure. This policy and associated standards ensure that all agencies take appropriate measures to safeguard these assets from both physical and environmental threats.
All Agencies shall implement appropriate physical and environmental security controls to protect the physical plant housing State information resources, the system resources themselves, and the infrastructure used to support their operation.
