An increase in the use of information and communication techniques, the complex modern infrastructure and a closer connection between different systems and organizations have created a greater vulnerability with respect to physical security. While numerous conceptual models, metaphors and principles have been developed to manage safety risks, security can be considered as a relatively young field of science. However, because of the similarities and interwovenness between safety and security, much can be learned from the models and principles that have been developed within safety science. Both safety and security have the same objective, that is, to avoid or reduce any losses. This article explains how physical security relates to safety and which models and principles from safety science can be employed to manage company's physical security risks.
