Energy facilities have significantly increased efforts in recent years to identify threats and improve the security of their critical assets, including vital IT and telecom networks.
Regulations mandated by the Department of Homeland Security have been designed to achieve specific outcomes, such as securing perimeters and critical targets, controlling access and deterring theft of potentially dangerous chemicals. Facilities on heightened security alert include power generation sites, hydropower dams, pipelines, refineries, terminals, petroleum and chemical facilities.
G4S Technology is experienced in critical infrastructure security measures and can help such facilities comply with federal mandates, while also offering important time and money-saving efficiencies. Our customers are some of the nation’s largest electrical, gas pipeline, water and wastewater companies, including American Electric Power (AEP), Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Denver Metro Wastewater Reclamation District and Pasadena Refining Systems Inc.
Our vast knowledge of security technology has allowed us to unify multiple security systems, such as access control, video analytics and intrusion detection, into one centralized command and control center connecting multiple locations. The customer benefit to this centralization is the ability to monitor unmanned locations from one off-site centralized command center, which creates streamlined processes, reduces human error and decreases costs.
