CCTV is one of the main stays of a modern security system. We can all benefit from another pair of eyes!
Its primary focus is to act as a verification system for other security measures. CCTV can be a single or combination of systems and technologies to form the overall security solution
CPNI Introduction to Perimeter Protection
Detection and Tracking is a fundamental part of modern electronic security. Intruder Detection Systems (IDS) and Perimeter Intruder Detection Systems (PIDS) form the main part of the CPNI detect philosophy. These should be supported by CCTV to aid with the detection task and to assist in the tracking and monitoring of a situation.
Advice from the CPNI - The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure
The most effective way for an organisation to protect itself against national security threats is to use a combination of physical, personnel and people, and cyber security measures. For example an expensive swipe-card and PIN access control system is of little use if there are inadequate checks on who is given a pass in the first place. It will also fail if the system can be remotely accessed or bypassed.
CPNI introduction to Physical Security
Effective physical security of an asset is achieved by multi-layering the different measures, what is commonly referred to as ‘defence-in-depth’. The concept is based on the principle that the security of an asset is not significantly reduced with the loss of any single layer.
