Do your contingency plans cover mice and snakes?

Physical security incidents are one class of incident that virtually all contingency plans cover, but are your plans broad enough to cater for the full range of potential physical security incidents? Here are some classic photographs of actual incidents that might make you re-think your approach:
- Mice nesting inside a system, using a handy computer manual as nesting material
- A snake living inside a nice warm system box
- Lightning/storm damage to electronics
- Inept maintenance and repairs
- Equipment overheating

There are more photos of this nature at the Microwave Mortuary if you need something to spice up your awareness program.
