The Energy Industry And Its Security Needs

Energy Industry

It’s an unfortunate reality that the energy is a target for terrorist attacks. Here’s why we think they need beefed up security.

Some people just don’t realize how essential the energy industry is–and as a result, how susceptible to terrorist attacks it is. Energy plants, especially nuclear power plants, have such a massive impact on the safety and day-to-day enjoyment of everyone near them. It’s clear then that the energy industry is in need of some serious security protocols. Gatekeeper is here not only to offer security solutions for the energy industry but to remind us of how truly essential said industry is to our everyday life.

Why The Energy Industry?

Having proper energy for everything might seem like a creature comfort, but it’s actually become essential to societal well-being. At one point, a congressional commission estimated that if there were a large-scale blackout for long enough in the United States, 90% of the population would perish from hunger, disease, and general societal breakdown. As a result, it’s an unfortunate truth that energy facilities are big targets for terrorist attacks. This calls for an essential variety of security protocols to keep all of us safe.

How Can Gatekeeper Help?

Monitoring who enters and exits your energy facility is massively important. Gatekeeper offers some great security tools to help with this. One is our Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System (AUVIS). The AUVIS, available as either a mobile or permanent installation, are capable of searching every vehicle that enters your facility. We also offer train undercarriage detection systems if you’ve got an oil refinery or coal-powered plant that needs a bump in security.

You may need more than that though. Our DriverCam works regardless of it being day or night–it will give you a high-quality photograph so you know who is approaching your gates. Even if the driver is using tinted glass, our powerful targeted LED lights will give you a clear image of who is driving.
