Transport - Security of premises

In the dynamic, highly competitive world of today, the value of the continuity of information has increased to previously unheard-of levels. This is one of the factors behind the massive development in security solutions and systems. A further factor behind the increased demand for the security and protection of information, assets and other valuable items is the unprecedented rise in the threat of terrorism, which knows no geographical limitation.

Current security solutions are represented by complex, wide-ranging systems which, thanks to considerable development in information technologies, telecommunications technologies and, primarily, system integration, can effectively neutralise a considerable number of fast-developing threats.

These types of security system are capable of processing information on the incidence and effects of a wide variety of physical and chemical substances, assessing this information according to evaluation criteria, while at the same time filtering and allocating it to the relevant logical and material contexts. A majority event can thus be determined based on the processing of mutually related events based on the principle of cause and effect so that, not only can high-risk locations and factors be indicated in time, but measures can also be taken to prevent serious damage and loss.

Experience gained through the evaluation of many security incidents says that the proper functioning of the ‘human factor’ involved in security systems has a crucial influence on the security level of information, assets and other valuable items.

It is therefore essential to develop both the correct applications for basic security measures, which could include e.g.:

  • Setting of authorisations of persons and means of transport for entry to premises
  • Rules for the handling of keys and means of identification
  • Rules for the handling and use of technical devices
  • Rules for monitoring the movement of persons on premises

as well as the correct application of basic technical elements, which include:

  • Mechanical preventive devices
  • Electronic locking devices and entry control systems
  • Electronic alarm devices
  • Special television systems (CCTV)
  • Emergency systems
  • Electronic fire alarm systems
  • Devices for the physical destruction of information carriers
  • Devices to prevent the passive and active overhearing of confidential information
  • Devices for the detection of dangerous substances and items

The role of system integration is the logical interlinking of basic system measures and technical devices so as to achieve the maximum effect of the security solution while optimising financial resources spent, and which will furthermore minimise any possible negative effects of the human factor. The system as a whole will then:

  • Process all security and technical signals
  • Communicate and coordinate its activities with other systems on the premises
  • Manage its activities according to a set schema, programmed either automatically or manually, or via both means
  • Display, in a comprehensible manner, the current or anticipated situation (graphical extension)
  • Manage its own functions, user functions, either randomly or purposely
  • Independently display and document the current situation and changes in the situation both in the secured premises and in the remote monitoring centre
