Physical security—the hardware used to maintain and enforce the security of a facility—constitutes the first step in situational awareness. Cameras are the most vital component, as they are the ones that supply visual information that can be most helpful to forming an understanding of the situation at hand. Other hardware such as detectors and scanners can also set off alarms and bring a potential security threat to your attention. Thus, all these pieces of hardware give you raw data on what is going on and what steps you can take to fully address the problem.
Forming a complete picture
The different information sent by cameras, scanners, detectors, and the like at a given time may not make much sense when considered separately. Qognify and other security software companies create solutions that can form a coherent picture of a situation using these pieces of information. Though certain events might seem unrelated to an observer, the software can put them together and trigger an appropriate response from you and your personnel.
Access to footage and information
Once this information has been integrated to form a coherent picture, it must be accessible to the right people. An effective situational awareness solution includes the accessibility of video footage and other bits of information through computer monitors and handheld devices. The inclusion of effective display applications in your personnel’s devices can help them work as a unit. Thus, though your staff is spread out in different parts of your facility, they can all take quickly action on the situation at hand.
Though you are dealing with a security risk, you of course will want your facility’s operations to run as usual. Speed and efficiency are two goals that Qognify understands perfectly. Situational management works beyond security concerns, and focuses on integrating security efforts and routines with the maintenance of other operations in your facility. The software can bridge operation gaps and ease the burden of information overload.
Situational management efforts and the collection of information over time can give you insight into the workings of your facility. Not only that, it can also help you objectively assess the effectiveness of your facility’s response to security issues. Your systems will have footage and information you can look over and to what responses you can you can improve. This way, you will be more prepared for the future and your facility’s situational awareness can be much better and sharper.happy wheels
