Physical and logical security within an organization have traditionally been implemented and administered as separate standalone entities. A growing number of companies are integrating these two systems to provide greater security along with lower cost and time requirements for administration. The following paper provides an overview of security convergence, including standards and initiatives driving this movement. A pre-implementation checklist is then provided as a template for those who wish to prepare themselves for a convergence project.
