Government – Federal
Acknowledging the risks
Australia enjoys a pluralist and stable democracy, and the risks are not usually of the revolutionary kind or a threat to government. The primary risk would arguably be a threat to the safety and security of the Australian people, which could arise through criminal activity, politically motivated violence or acts of communal violence. They may arise from the theft of weaponry or from the loss or destruction of government buildings, whether administrative, research laboratories or defence force bases. The most likely and damaging risks to the federal government concerns the loss/theft/unauthorised disclosure of classified and often sensitive information; breakdowns in access control leading to unauthorised entry; insecure disposal of classified material; and the failure to respond to intruders and/or alarms in sensitive or key areas.
Creating the solution
The response to the most likely and damaging risks is a combination of prevention and mitigation measures and state of the art access control systems. These need to be backed up by CCTV systems combining fixed and Pan Tilt Zoom cameras, wide angle lens, peripheral vision and a ‘smart’ system that notices movement or change and sends an alarm to operators in the control room. The evolution of internet protocol (IP) cameras is revolutionising this field. Instant access and ability to store extraordinary amounts of recorded vision is extremely valuable. The front-line technological detection is backed up by patrols directed by experienced controllers. The key here is world-leading technology at prices which are surprisingly reasonable. We do not start with a solution. We will take account of your risk exposure and tailor a total solution that will mitigate your risks, adjust to your changing priorities and be truly innovative. This is not only more effective, because it is integrated, but it will be more cost effective. For more information on how we can assist you – contact us.
