Lock Bumping and IT Department…the weakest link

There was a great blog post that had such a unique perspective we just had to share it with our customers and audience. It was titled, “Lock Bumping” and was written on the IT Generalist blog.

Many people have now heard of a technique that is out there called “Lock Bumping” as a way of opening a door.  Essentially, it is inserting the key into the lock and then “bumping” it hard enough where the tumblers move and the lock is now open.  This is much more common with the cheaper locks on the market today and if you have a solid lock, like one from Medeco your likelihood is significantly reduced.  The blog goes on to point out that if you buy a cheap lock, you can expect to get it bumped.

Now here is the interesting point they were making in the post.  You can spend tens of thousands of dollars on IT, including security systems on the computers and servers but if the cyber thief can gain access to the computers they can do just about anything.  So while all this time and money is spent on “locking down” your computer systems, minimal amount of money is being spent on the lock to keep them out.  As noted in the article, these locks can be “bumped” in as little as 60 seconds.   So it doesn’t make sense to us to have all this security being spent to keep people out of your information and employee accounts, only to allow them much easier access through your doors.

Whether you use Watson Security advisors or someone else, get someone to come in who knows all about helping you build a “security strategy” so you are spending your money wisely and you are fixing the weakest link in your overall security systems.  Stop people or at least make it difficult for them to gain entry into your most valuable asset – your information.  Put a plan together where you look for these “weak links” in your system so you can avoid losing your most valuable assets just because you “didn’t know any better.”
