Every organization seeks to achieve continuity in its operation even if a threat occurs on an asset. Companies’ assets are now increasingly information-based and intangible. Even most physical assets rely heavily on information. For example, manufacturers are dependent on receiving specific information from suppliers before the process of producing the physical products can commence. The security of this information is vital to the development of physical products. As these assets become increasingly intangible, there is a greater need to integrate physical and information security, as well as security throughout the entire enterprise. The consequences of losing information asset will have both direct and indirect impact to the organization.
Most organization have established Server Rooms however the big question remains to be how secure are they? This question may be overlooked by those with responsibilities of ensuring that the information is readily available when needed to those with authorized access. Server rooms are vulnerable to fire and therefore comprehensive security measures must be in place to mitigate inherent risks. The following are solutions offered by FEDAN with focused on helping organizations enhance their resilience to fire disasters thereby achieving operational continuity:

e. Installation of Access Control System.
f. Disaster and Emergency Training.
g. Security Awareness Training.
h. Counter-terrorism Awareness Training.
