7 fundamental strategies for reinforcing Hardware Security and protecting Enterprise Systems

How do you reinforce hardware against unauthorised access and attacks? Implementing hardware security is critical, and understanding it helps protect enterprise systems at every level.

In this blog, we explore seven fundamental strategies to shield your organisation from hardware-related threats.

Key Takeaways

  • Hardware security is essential for protecting physical devices against unauthorised access, including firmware, BIOS, and network cards vulnerabilities, as well as measures like two-factor authentication and use of specialised devices such as HSMs.
  • The use of physical access controls, such as CCTV and entry regulations, is critical for preventing unauthorised access and mitigating risks associated with hardware security, including threats from local interfaces in IoT applications.
  • Regular hardware security management, including conducting security audits, assessing hardware suppliers, and mitigating risks from unused wireless interfaces and counterfeit hardware, is crucial for maintaining secure enterprise systems.
