Electronic Security

The use of electronic devices to guard, protect, respond or monitor is nothing new. However, with innovative new technology emerging that benefits both the organisations trying to protect against threats and the threat actors themselves, it is essential to regularly evaluate the way your organisation utilises electronic security.

Electronic security refers to a wide range of systems and devices including management systems, monitoring/control centres, integrated access control, biometrics, intrusion detection, alarms, movement and thermal detection, duress alarms, CCTV and lighting.

Each of these are designed with something specific in mind. For example, CCTV systems monitor and record a property using videos cameras and are often deployed as a deterrent to criminal activity, to provide assurance to legitimate people occupying an area and to aid in the detection of and response to crime. Meanwhile, devices such as Duress Alarms act as discrete mobile systems that help organisations to track their employees, monitor their well-being and to respond with trained professionals if necessary.

When it comes to utilising any form of electronic security, it is essential that you carefully and regularly assess all your options in the context of your unique security needs and requirements, in order to get a proper picture of were you should be deploying electronic security, why you should be doing it and how you should do it.

Making these types of evaluations often requires a security assessment that looks at your organisation in-depth, in order to truly understand its risk profile.
