This giggle-worthy video illustrates an important story. You already know that Troy was a legendary city which was deemed unbreachable by the outside world. Troy was protected by high walls and defended by some of the best warriors in the country.
The Greeks orchestrated a plan to breach the physical security around Troy with the now-famous Trojan horse. This mythological term snuck into modern jargon to describe a malicious software-based attack (Trojans).
Troy, obviously, had an impressive physical defense against invaders. This parallels directly with the goal of physical security for overall network security: in the same way you would lock your door to protect the valuables in your home, you need to implement physical measures to protect your infrastructure. This short video draws an important parallel with real-life cyber invaders. The walls of your building and the people that stand between hackers and your data, are your first line of defense.
Obviously, your enterprise cyber security measures will entail more than physical protection and a demure button push. Setting up strategic physical defenses is only a small part of your overall network security plan.
