Physical security is one of the core pillars of cybersecurity. Assessment of physical security is beneficial to every organization no matter the maturity level. Our friends at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) have designed a self-assessment tool for securing Houses of Worship which are often the targets of violence and terrorism.
“In this security guide, CISA analyzed ten years of targeted attacks on houses of worship to provide context to the enterprise-wide security recommendations outlined in the previous chapters. The case studies reviewed are examples of the breadth of threats a house of worship faces daily. From physical attacks such as active shooter incidents, arsons, or bombings to less visible cyberattacks, a house of worship should be vigilant in its security practices.” — https://www.cisa.gov/publication/mitigating-attacks-houses-worship-security-guide
