What do most physical security professionals consider the minimum fence height to slow down a determined intruder?
A. 4 feet
B. 8 feet
C. 6 feet
D. 12 feet
Correct Answer: B
Most security professionals consider eight feet to be the minimum height for a fence protecting critical assets. It is trivial for an intruder to climb a fence of six feet or less. A fence that stands twelve feet high is likely unnecessary and aesthetically unpleasant. For added security, organizations may add barbed wire to the top of the fence.
