The heightened security threats that we face today – especially given the high levels of international terrorism – affect huge parts of our lives.
In recent years, public buildings, hotels, embassies and transport links have all been targeted by terrorists. Huge parts of our critical national infrastructures, including power, water and food supply, transport links and facilities, government premises and commercial facilities remain vulnerable, not just to terrorist attacks, but also to theft, sabotage and environmental disaster.
Governments around the world are promoting efforts to implement physical security equipment that can provide enhanced prevention, protection, response and alert capabilities that improve the dependability and resilience of security systems.
Private companies are also looking to invest in physical security enhancements – both of their own private facilities, as well as the fact that much public infrastructure is owned and operated by the private sector.
Carpark Barriers Turnstiles install and maintain a range of physical security equipment from automatic car park barriers to metal fencing, all of which have a proven record in increasing security for both public and private properties.
If you think it is time to implement a physical security solution to your site, then you need to be aware of four key areas to consider:
- the architecture of the facility, including perimeter boundaries and doors;
- security operations, including security policies, procedures and incident response guidelines;
- personnel, including monitoring and access control;
- electronic devices, including sensors, turnstiles, surveillance systems and strong authentication technologies.
If you require further information or advice on physical security implementation, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
