Sneakey can duplicate a key from 200ft away

Can you have data security without physical security? I hope you know the answer for your particular facility in light of this research project from the University of California San Diego called "Sneakey." Sneakey is a software which can create a physical duplicate of a key from a digital image. In an experiment conducted from 195ft away, the researchers were able to take a digital photo (zoom lens) of a key chain and match all 5 bitting codes (the indentations on the keys), enough to be able to create a duplicate key.
