Ports/ Maritime/ Transportation
The security challenges facing the Ports, Maritime and Transportation sectors are some of the most diverse in any sector as they relate to the types of threats that are present and the scale of the sector.
The movement of passengers and cargo by road and rail has been one of the most frequently targeted sectors for both terrorists and organized crime.
Ports have to protect against a wide range of threats that can range from ship borne to underwater based and from theft and vandalism to piracy. Not only do they have to meet security regulations such as the International Ship and Port facility Security code (ISPS) but they will have to meet the requirements of maritime regulations such as Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).
In Transportation, the size of the industry leads to challenges in both the range of vulnerabilities and the volume of passengers and freight to be protected, creating a need for systems that can be scaled to meet requirements. Safety of passengers and the protection of freight are paramount and the ability to create co-ordinate responses to incidents is becoming increasingly critical.
Access Control and Intruder products
AIC helps the Ports and Maritime sector to meet their security requirements by providing access control and intruder products. From single door access control to enterprise wide integrated security systems AIC's solutions empowers the transportation industry to meet its requirements to ensure a safe and secure environment.
Access control is an important part of the security environment in the Port and Maritime sector and provides the ability to control and monitor movement of staff in restricted areas. This helps the port authority to meet the requirements of the ISPS Security code. The ability to run AIC's access control system over the IT infrastructure is particularly beneficial in a port where the geographical area can be large and having to run cable for individual systems can involve significant expense.
This ability to integrate AIC's systems is possible not only at the physical (cabling) level but also at the application level the access control and intruder systems can be brought together to provide a single point of control. AIC's integrated approach will enable Port and Maritime clients to secure restricted areas, detect and analyze incidents, and manage those incidents effectively in order to protect travelers and cargo.
