You are a security consultant and have been hired to evaluate an organization's physical security practices. All employees must pass through a locked door to enter the main work area. Access is restricted using a smart card reader. Network jacks are provided in the reception area such that employees and vendors can access the company network for work-related purposes. Users within the secured work area have been trained to lock their workstations if they will be leaving them for any period of time.
What recommendation would you MOST likely make to increase security?

D. Replace the smart card reader with a key code lock.
In other to increase the security of the company, the best security practice would be to replace the smart card reader with a key code lock. This is because, with the smart card reader, an unauthorised person who was able to pick up one of the cards could be able to access the secured work station.
On the other hand, if the area is accessed with key code lock, the, it is only the person who knows the code that will be able to access the secured work area. Of course, the key code will vary from one individual to another in the organization.
