3.Checking for unsecured ports on the network..But what is the best technique in doing this?

You can run a port scan and see which port is open. For example is your company didnt use FTP service and port21 is open. You may close or disable it.

4.Physical security. Would I be responcible for running the internal security department as in teh roaming security guards?

what i understand about physical security is that securing your server or workstation having physical contact by a intruders. If a intruders having a physical contact with the server he may just plug in a thumdrive and install a virus or something. to prevent this you may disable the use of USB.
