With the invention of vehicles, the multiple benefits seemed very obvious. Not only did it open up the entire world for various different paths to travel, but in some ways, it is now the foundation on which we have built the worldwide modern trade system. Without proper road vehicles, life as we know it would be pretty difficult. Unfortunately, with the pros of vehicles, there are also a few cons – including security risks. Security risks have become more and more of a concern in the last few years. Read on to learn more about how vehicle security matters while talking about potential terrorist attacks.
Examples of Potential Terrorist Attacks
Some terrorist organizations could tempt western recruits to use trucks as weapons, and it has happened before. The fact is that road vehicles are a lot more accessible – much more so than bombs or guns in each Western country. Since this is the case, they’re able to be utilized in the name of terrorist attacks. It has become much more evident in recent history. The 2017 Barcelona terrorist attack, where a van plowed through a crowd in a tourist area, killed 13 people and injured plenty more. This is why security technology needs to be implemented wherever and whenever possible.
Creating the Need for Vehicle Security
Unfortunately, these incidents are not isolated either and seem to happen more commonly in the 21st century. Vehicles have become a commonplace for terrorist attacks within the last five years.
Utilizing Gatekeeper Security’s Own Three-Factor Authentication
A severe threat requires a serious response. Gatekeeper Security’s systems are intended to create a three-factor authentication process, in which the driver and the occupants of the car are all identified, the license plate of the car is recognized, and the model, make, and color of the vehicle are all identified. Measures like this can greatly help combatting actual terrorist threats to make sure the world’s roads are much safer.
