Physical Security Concepts Physical security is protection from any unwanted attackers or intrusions. Detecting and preventing from anything that can cause harm or damage the business or organization is the focus of physical security. Usually all businesses have weaknesses and vulnerabilities and physical security is there to protect them. The intent of Physical Security is to control access and prevent the interruption of operations. These goals are accomplished using tangible countermeasures ranging from fencing and lighting to electronic surveillance equipment and carefully defined policies and procedures.
What does the organisation do to ensure that their information is secure? All computers can’t be accessed without a password and other information is kept in a locked safe.

Workplace confidentiality requires that this information be identified and secured to prevent unauthorised access or release of the information and includes everything from policies on workplace Internet usage to nondisclosure agreements in employee contracts. Breaches of workplace confidentiality can result in a range of problems. Customers tend not to work with companies they think are untrustworthy, and consumers may specifically warn people away from companies that have mishandled private information like addresses, purchasing records, and credit card numbers. Companies can also experience compromises in their long term business plans if information about products in development or ideas a company is considering are released
In most instances companies have the rights to monitor their employees in order to ensure productivity, ethics, and prevent misuse of company property. However, employees do have some extent of privacy in the workplace. Employees are protected in regards to their personnel records, medical and health information, social security numbers, background screening, credit reports, and financial information. Employers must get consent from employees before gathering personal information and must keep employees information confidential. The Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) was revamped by Congress in 1986 and now covers all forms of digital communications, including private email.
Abstract. The most common ways to keep track of employees is video surveillance, monitoring e-mails, keeping track of pages visited on the Internet and anything else that happens on computer, fixing the time of arrival and departure from work, listen to and record telephone conversations. Some of these methods are quite obvious for employees - for example, time-stamping, but some are hidden and may be disturbing to learn about. Business conduct surveillance not just to protect their employees and property, but to insure that procedures that are in place are being followed and to have a control over the business environment. That invasion of privacy can be justified by employer, but can also be an offense to employee.
This rule requires more administration being that computers get hacked daily. There is always someone making sure that no one has hacked the information and that every patients' information is safe. The security rule requires physical and technical safety. Since most medical facilities use the electronic system, it is very important to keep this system save so the information held is safe.

He believes looking through employees and children’s computers is a complete transgression of their privacy, and it’s not right. McFadden also believes, just because the employer or parent is snooping through the employee or child’s computer, doesn’t mean that he or she will stop the bad behavior. While I somewhat agree with McFadden’s beliefs about ones privacy, looking through an employees’ or child’s computer is completely necessary in regards to ethics and protection. Employee monitoring within the workplace, is an effective way for the company to find its unsatisfactory employees. According to McFadden, “a whole market of programs has emerged that allows companies to secretly record everything a person does with his or her computer.” In the past and present, employees believe that it’s acceptable to use their company’s computers to look at porn, participate in social networking, and send instant messages to friends.
The errors that result from errors in translation are the cause of many problems in invoicing and making payments. These problems consume people's time and slow down cash flow. All these expenses simply eat away at profit margins that are already thin enough. In addition to the operating problems caused by using different part numbers for the same item, another consequence is a lack of accuracy and clarity in sales history data. Part number translation errors result in sales of some items being undercounted and sales of other items being overcounted.
