In the last couple of years, there have been significant online attacks against critical infrastructure in the United States that have led to shortages, price hikes, and other disruptions of everyday life. If bad actors were to launch a physical attack against infrastructure, it could be even more devastating. Delta Scientific offers a range of security products that can protect critical infrastructure facilities.
A nation’s utilities are one of the most integral parts of its infrastructure. Disrupting electricity, natural gas or water can inconvenience, or more threaten, the lives of thousands of citizens. These facilities pose challenges not generally associated with other locations. While cybersecurity is at the forefront of utility protection, these locations still need to be protected from more traditional physical assaults as well.
Terrorism takes many forms, but the most potent attacks come when everyday items are transformed into weapons of destruction. Cities the world over are faced with such attacks, and their responses will shape not only safety practices but the development of those cities as a whole. As more and more metropolitan areas add barricades and additional security measures, it comes at a cost. Pedestrian traffic and public enjoyment might be limited by barriers, but what is being sacrificed, and can those concerns be mitigated?
