I worked as a part of a two-man Physical Security Administration team. Our team developed access training materials for the physical and cyber security of critical Transmission, Distribution, and data center facilities. We managed all physical access to these facilities, as well as oversaw maintenance of physical security equipment.
We also made ongoing modifications to the central physical access control system, it servers, and the related physical access control system equipment configured on-site at each critical facility.
The overall work environment was acceptable. Immediate team lead was very professional. Our direct and middle level management did not possess much integrity. Our manager very rarely supported the team.
The management made every decision based on cost savings, and eventually cost the company much more money in regulatory fines, because they lacked strategic foresight for the high technology environment that supported the critical facilities required to meet regulatory compliance.
