Section: Compliance and Operational Security

To stop someone from entering a facility, barricades or gauntlets can be used. These are often used in conjunction with guards, fencing, and other physical security measures. Bollards are physical barriers that are strong enough to withstand impact with a vehicle.

Incorrect Answers:
A: Fencing, although also a physical barrier is not as strong as bollards and will not keep a vehicle out on impact.
B: Proximity readers are not designed to withstand impact from vehicles.
C: Video surveillance will not stop a vehicle impact.
