Common physical security measures can include the following:

a . Cable shielding: Braided layers around the conductor cable protect it from electromagnetic interference (EMI), which could corrupt data or data transmissions.
b. Corner bolts: An inexpensive way to secure a computer to a desktop or counter, these often have locks as an additional protection against theft.
c. Electronic trackers: These devices are secured to a computer at the power outlet. If the power cord is disconnected, a transmitter sends a message to an alarm that goes off or to a camera that records what happens.
d. Identification (ID) badges: These are checked against a list of authorized personnel, which must be updated regularly to reflect changes in personnel.
e. Proximity-release door openers: These are an effective way to control access to the computer room. A small radio transmitter is placed in authorized employees' ID badges, and when they come within a predetermined distance of the computer room's door, a radio signal sends a key number to the receiver, which unlocks the door.
