An industry that was formerly the concern of physical security now requires a converged security approach. The convergence of cyber and physical security will allow security teams to have better communication and broaden their scope of intelligence that couldn’t be otherwise accomplished by operating in silos.
Official reports from the CDC and WHO only told part of the story. Using the Media Sonar platform, we used a simple set of queries to quickly identify any newly reported cases as they were discovered. This information helped fill any gaps and delays in official reporting and helped to provide an early warning of new cases in North America.
What does situational awareness have to do with facility protection? Facility protection involves protecting physical spaces. This is traditionally accomplished by controlling access and monitoring the physical space for threats. Security personnel observe people, and their behaviors, to inform what actions need to be taken at any given moment. The responses tend to be more reactive than proactive because you must rely on what you see to dictate what to do.
