Hardening oil and gas infrastructures from physical threats and cyberattacks

    As we enter a new year, I’m seeing many changes in the oil and gas industries. Producers are positioning themselves to embrace IoT and new devices to upgrade their existing remote pad sites and facilities. However, protecting new systems and devices isn’t without challenges. Cybersecurity is a major concern and protecting against cyberthreats is obviously […]

      Securing critical infrastructure; it’s more than perimeter protection

      When you talk about securing critical infrastructure, the challenge is threefold: secure the property, secure the processes and secure the safety of personnel. But that doesn’t mean you have to triple your investment in security systems. With IP-based technology, it’s possible to achieve all three goals with one solution. By integrating existing network cameras and […]

        A win, win, win proposition for critical infrastructure

        When is a surveillance system more than a surveillance system? When it not only protects an organization’s premises but also supports efficient, reliable operations, and health and safety. Network surveillance supports critical infrastructure organizations in three ways: It helps them reach their goals for security, for operations and for health and safety, all with a […]

          How radar and the critical infrastructure industry converged

          Did you know: The first practical radar system was produced in 1935 by the British physicist Sir Robert Watson-Watt, and by 1939 England had established a chain of radar stations along its south and east coasts to detect aggressors in the air or on the sea. Over the next several years, radar evolved into water-based and ground-based systems for […]

            Zooming into the future of surveillance in mining

            While digital transformation is currently reshaping every industry and sector, mining surveillance has traditionally been slow to adopt the latest technological trends. This is changing as businesses are starting to gear up to leverage new opportunities that are created by emerging digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) in […]

              Welcome to my new critical infrastructure blog on Secure Insights

              What is critical infrastructure? It’s the essential resources, services, assets and structures that help drive and support a healthy economy and society. That’s one big open answer! I would like to introduce myself. My name is Joe Morgan, and I am the Business Development Manager for Critical Infrastructure for Axis Communications in North America. I […]
