Physical Security – Data Centers and beyond
Ward IT Security Consulting Group has performed comprehensive independent physical and environmental assessments of some of the most critical data center sites in the Northeast. Our evaluation methodology is modular in design to ensure compliance with multiple regulatory environments and physical site variations.
In evaluating your data center’s physical security risks, we provide you with the assurance that all control capabilities impacting compliance will be thoroughly investigated, evaluated, and documented.
We Work Face-to-Face
Our experts work directly on-site with your facilities management, IT team and support staff. Our collaborative methodology guarantees a transparent and effective knowledge transfer process to our clients and their staff.
We summarize each investigation in a Report of Findings. We verify threats with supporting objective evidence and NIST references. We rate each vulnerability to assist your risk management process.
We review your physical security, IT policies, processes and procedures. Vulnerabilities are verified, assigned threat levels and supported with evidence and artifacts. Our report is based on facts with recommendation to allow you to prioritize remediation solutions based on risk.

Our Collaborative Approach
Ward Consulting is a small group of dedicated American professionals. We are best-of-breed specialists who provide unique solutions to each client and value working as a team. Together, we developed a collaborative approach that includes your IT management and business process owners on our evaluation team. We believe information is critical to any IT assessment. That’s why we begin each evaluation by working to understand your business processes.
Our team doesn’t perform audits that simply assign a pass/fail grade. Any IT system evaluation we perform includes a significant knowledge transfer from us to your organization. When we present our findings, we provide evidence and NIST references. If we uncover any threats, we rate them in a way that allows you to choose remediation alternatives based on criticality to your enterprise.
