Access Control Systems
Access control should comprise something you have, something you know, and something you are. Barcode, barium ferrite, magnetic strip, Weigland, proximity, and Hollerith are types of card or badge readers. Barriers restrict or impede access, are continuous, and deter threats. Locks are mechanical or electrical. Containers are classified by the Underwriters Association and categorized as burglary, record, and media. Area classification is controlled, limited, and exclusion.
Roger Roehr will present detail of each providing insight to what goes on behind the scenes with access control.
