When it comes down to security systems, the end-user is something that always must be thought of as one top priority. Keeping them safe but also making systems usable and intuitive is a crucial part of developing reliable security technologies. Whether it is cybersecurity, transportation, or physical security, there are a few different principles that guide the development of security and system protocols. Today, we will take a look at three important elements behind any security system and why they are so essential, as well as what that might actually look like within one specific system.

Access must only be granted to those who have the right credentials. Think of something like an intelligent driver camera. While it might be integrated alongside a database of different facial scans granted access, it is important that nobody can access that database outside of security pros. If somebody were to gain access to the backend of the system, they might be able to acquire sensitive data about end-users that might jeopardize their safety. Ensuring the system is confidential that anybody who ends up using it isn’t at risk of having their private information stolen is an essential part of developing a reliable security system.
When it comes down to availability, security professionals must be able to access and interact with security systems whenever needed. Availability also means making sure that the end-user is not impeded upon and is able to successfully and quickly take advantage of the security system and reap its benefits.
While it is important to make sure to access the backend of systems is protected, it is also important that the backend’s integrity is also maintained. Any information that is relied on has to be updated and accurate. This means that changes within the system, whether that involves new types of vehicles to look for with intelligent train undercarriage or intelligent vehicle undercarriage scanners or just updated access control credentials, have to be accurate and communicated properly across the board. A reliable security system balances these three different principles and allows for a much smoother user experience for everyone involved.
