Physical access = Game over

If a skilled adversary can gain physical access to a PC, it's game over as far as information security is concerned. Without appropriate controls in place, he/she can potentially install a hardware keyboard logger, download data and programs to/from a USB memory device, reboot from a powerful operating system on a CD/DVD or USB memory device, steal the hard drive or other components, destroy the system ... Do you search visitors to your site for USB pens for example?
