Unified ecosystem for threat intelligence, risk visualization, and mass communications; reliable emergency management
MELBOURNE-based security and business resilience provider Bellrock, has partnered with Seattle based Stabilitas to provide real-time threat intelligence communication on a convenient mobile and desktop environment.
This partnership offers clients a unified ecosystem for threat intelligence, risk visualization, and mass communications; reliable emergency management wherever teams work – at home and on the road; centralised oversight of security teams and assets, both at headquarters and in the field, and active engagement, tracking and communication with colleagues, contractors or management.
Information is augmented by user interactions with the platform, which allows for unprecedented speed in identifying and alerting facilities and employees to risks, including using artificial intelligence (AI).
Intelligent Security Integration’s Mobile CCTV Command Centre got plenty of attention at Security 2016. The unit combines multiple integrated fixed and PTZ HD cameras, 360-degree 4K cameras, thermal cameras and 8 deployable cameras with video and manpower management. It’s the attention to detail that transfixed the crowd. The MCCC is thoughtfully conceived and beautifully executed.
MOBILE command centres are not a new concept by any means and we’ve seen a number of mobile trailers at security shows over the years that are designed to push intelligence gathering outside of built spaces. But none of these units can compare with the Intelligent Security Integration’s van-based Mobile CCTV Command Centre, which combines the latest video surveillance and communications technology to create remote area security for events and other applications.
Yankee Stadium installing metal detectors at every gate
YANKEE Stadium is adding metal detectors at some of the venue’s entrances as part of Major League Baseball’s efforts to standardize security at all stadiums. All entrances at Yankee Stadium will have metal detectors by 2015.
According to reports, fans will be asked to remove cell phones and all large metal objects from their pockets before walking through the metal detectors. The detectors will support current bag checks. Fans who choose not to go through a walk-through metal detector will have the option of being manually checked with a hand-held detector.
It’s a move likely to be replicated at other major sports venues globally, most of which currently rely on cursory bag checks. The challenges for security managers of such venues include ensuring fluidity of foot vast traffic flow into and out of venues before and after games.
Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) is built around 9 principles. These principles can be used by security managers to better control and protect their own and adjoining sites. Understanding the nature of space will also help system designers recognize and defend vulnerable locations.
PROPERLY applied, CPTED allows effective security policy to govern space on a site using physical and electronic means. While you normally think of space design as something that ends the minute an architect's building plans are signed off, that's only half the story. Even if the design you're stuck with creates vulnerable areas, you can make them into strengths.
