Surveillance and Security

We are seeing changes driven by mutations in the nature of terrorist threats and these have created needs for Critical Infrastructure property owners and operators to align their protection and safety regimes with advice received from two main sources - the Police and liability insurers/re-assurance organisations.

In Europe, we are seeing the movement from asset protection in transportation venues toward the need to protect un-checked crowds in areas such as Check-in areas of airports, luggage drop-off zones and assembly points around terminal buildings. The reasons are clear - historically, the security effort was aimed toward stopping criminal damage against airplanes and airport machinery on the part of the transport operators, and to stop theft and fraud in the cases of in-terminal retailers.

The need to identify persons of interest approaching and moving around airport and transportation facilities has become a priority need sought after by operators increasingly since the attacks at Zavantem, Belgium which was a terrorist crime perpetrated against crowds of innocent airport travelers in an area PRIOR to the areas where passengers passed through security equipment and search areas.

Historically, protecting planes and stopping luggage theft was a priority - and now the effort is expanded toward increasing the safety of the airplane travelers and luggage owners instead.  For the complete discussion, please click here.
