Just about every single thing we do nowadays relies on energy companies. The fact is, modern-day society would crumble away if we suddenly lost all of the components of our energy infrastructure. While energy companies might not come to mind as immediate targets for terrorists, compared to densely populated events, buildings, and checkpoints that have historically been targeted for acts of terror, just consider the amount of damage that has happened before. Events like Chernobyl in Russia and Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster made it clear that nuclear energy facilities have to be protected. Even beyond that though, any element of the energy field is important to maintain our daily lives. Let us break down how security technology has become an important part of the energy industry and how it can help!
Why Energy Companies?
Almost everything we do relies on the continued functionality of energy companies. From stoplights to cell phones, to computers, and anything else that runs off a power cable, keeping these devices up and running is important when it comes to maintaining our current standard of living. With the current global pandemic, this is especially true. Beyond that, though, most security technology out there relies on staying powered up, so if we undermine the integrity of the energy companies, we undermine the integrity of the entire security industry. Facilities and sites such as nuclear power plants, oil refineries, and natural gas centers all require a strong security technology approach that can cover all of its bases.
Which Technology is Used for Security?
In the past, a lot of the heavy lifting required security professionals to be trained and to know what to look out for. This approach opens up the possibility of human error, causing severe mistakes and hurting people on the job. Modern security technology now takes advantage of artificial intelligence, allowing complex algorithms to do their job a lot more effectively. Gatekeeper Security’s approach towards vehicle inspection is just one of the many ways this A.I.-centered approach can effectively secure sensitive energy companies. Under Vehicle Undercarriage Scanners, as well as Intelligent License Plate Analytics, can all help energy facilities be safe.
