Physical Security in MDF,IDF, and Phone rooms

All the companies that I’ve worked for have had the policy of “Never leave unauthorized people alone in the MDF’s, IDF’s , and the phone room’s. “ That being said, over the past year or so I’ve been talking to Phone Guy’s/Gal’s and such that have come to do work in these “sensitive areas.”

I asked them “How many companies require someone be with them? The answer is about half. That doesn’t seem very good. So then I start asking about the people that hang out with them. It seems that again only about half are computer and/or phone people. It seems odd that you would put a guard on the worker that doesn’t know anything about phones and computers.
