Prior to offering this advice to management personnel, the company had just gotten rid of its server room and opted for a data center. As such, they dedicated an unused section of the building to serve as its data center. Very few employees had access to this room, and those that did had to key in a password at the entrance to gain access to the data center. In order to improve the security of the company and client data stored within this room, I advised the company to add another layer of protection. This extra layer would be a biometric authentication system. In addition to requiring authorized employees to key in their password, they will also have to place their finger onto a scanner to verify their identity. Thus, an employee will have to key in their password and then slide their finger into a scanner with their fingerprint record to complete the identity verification process. Without these two, an employee cannot gain access to the company’s data center.
