The biggest challenge that the energy industry faces today is how to meet the ever-changing risk factors and addressing all of their necessary security aspects. Considering the unique infrastructure, sensitive and expensive materials onboard, and sometimes some classified national assets, energy facilities are always a potential subject to various security threats. With multiple oil refineries, nuclear power plants, reactors, and fuel cycle facilities in operation all around the world, preventing certain materials from falling into the hands of those seeking to steal or harm these facilities is the top priority of the corporation’s security teams. These could include explosive devices and sabotage attacks from those entering in vehicles. This is where Gatekeeper’s under vehicle inspection technology comes in. Read on to learn just how this technology can help protect energy facilities!
Under Vehicle Inspection Technology’s Role for Energy Infrastructures
Access to owner-controlled areas should be limited and protected by an automated access control system that will integrate with the alarmed security doors and response system connected to local or federal law enforcement groups, who can help in the event of a possible attack. Gatekeeper’s system integrated under vehicle inspection technology helps ensure that all measures are being taken to control vehicles’ access to any sensitive energy facilities and protect them from these risks. Gatekeeper’s advanced learning algorithms were developed through training with countless vehicles and allow it to recognize and point out possible oddities during a security check. Built on a proper understanding of what a wide range of vehicles are supposed to look like in different environmental conditions, under vehicle inspection technology can be used for vehicles that might not have been previously scanned. This technology can check for potential threats on the vehicle’s underside regardless of the model, make, or condition.
Some other forms of system-integrated technology that are implemented are license plate scanners, which can be used to swiftly recognize each vehicle’s driver.
How to Keep Confidential Materials Protected in Energy Facilities
Due to the complex environment and sensitive information, energy sites are a prime target for technology and data theft scenarios. The physical protection of energy plants and any associated facilities have to include vehicle access point inspection to help ensure these security systems’ effectiveness against any defined risk factors by Gatekeeper’s tailored security level.
