Securing critical infrastructure is a key consideration for nation-states, not just for their defense but for the economy and well-being of a large amount of people. Yet, the emergence of advanced and manifold threats to this infrastructure has forced mangers and businesses to come up with integral and multi-level solutions that go beyond the domain of perimeter protection. So, how to you approach securing the infrastructural assets, personnel, and critical activities in 2020?
- Is perimeter protection sufficient to protect critical infrastructure alone in 2020? No, but it can perform its tasks via integration with diverse systems. Network cameras, video analytics, communication systems, radar, and data sensors are now sufficiently advanced to work in unison and be ready to respond to any scenario involving sabotages or technical failures. Thermal cameras, for example, can be integrated with an audio detection system to have both eyes and ears in the field and fend off intruders more efficiently.
- What is more important, an “intelligent” response or a brute force approach?The answer may be obvious but you’d be surprised to know how intelligent analytics sometimes get overlooked in making the infrastructuralassets more secure. Analytical systems, for example, can verify the threat, establish its nature, and prepare a response on time. You can also save money on the account of having fewer false alarms that have plagued the perimeter protection since day one.
- Do you know that keeping infrastructure up & running is just as important as keeping intruders at bay? Equipmentrepairs and breakdowns can be costly and preventing or responding to them promptly is essential. Perimeter security lends a helping hand here, too, as its equipment components such as PTZ cameras can be easily switched from keeping eyes on fences to monitoring critical dials and indicators on the equipment. The same goes for thermal cameras that can register changes in temperatures as indicators of incoming failures.
