AI-powered Unified Video Management Platform: The Gateway to Improved Critical Infrastructure Security

In our fast-paced world, critical infrastructure plays a vital role in ensuring the seamless functioning of society. From energy, oil, and gas plants to defence manufacturing, these essential systems form the backbone of modern civilization. However, as these essential systems intertwine and grow more intricate in their connections, the security challenges they confront have undergone a significant transformation, evolving into increasingly sophisticated and intricate obstacles that demand vigilant and innovative solutions. Factors such as rapid proliferation of digital technologies, the expansion of interconnected networks, and the escalating sophistication of cyber threats have collectively given rise to a new landscape of vulnerabilities.

Therefore, in this interconnected realm, the once-isolated sectors of critical infrastructure now find themselves exposed to a broader range of potential risks. The convergence of physical and digital realms has created novel avenues for attacks, where a breach in one corner of the system can cascade across sectors, amplifying the potential impact. Moreover, the reliance on digital control systems and the integration of Internet of Things (IoT) devices have expanded the attack surface, providing adversaries with a wider array of entry points. The evolving threat landscape is further accentuated by the increasing skill and resourcefulness of cybercriminals and state-sponsored actors. These malicious agents continuously adapt their tactics, techniques, and procedures to exploit emerging vulnerabilities and circumvent traditional defense mechanisms.

Emerging Threats in Critical Infrastructure

As a result, the call for innovative solutions has become more urgent. This is evidenced by a report by Gartner that states by 2025, 30% of critical infrastructure organisations will experience a security breach that will result in the halting of operations- or mission-critical cyber-physical systems. According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s annual summary of DOE-417 Electric Emergency Incident and Disturbance Reports, reporting of incidents related to the physical security of electricity infrastructure increased by 70% in 2022, compared to the prior three years. On a global scale, a report by the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers reports an alarming 36% higher fatalities than the previous year.

However, the threat is not limited to physical security but also cyber resilience of critical infrastructure organisations. The State of Incident Response by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction reports how over half of all organizations interviewed in APAC (59%) have experienced a cyber incident, of which a third (32%) have suffered multiple incidents. It is therefore crucial to recognise that threats to a country’s critical infrastructure can pose a serious threat to the physical security and resilience of these systems.

The Imperative for Advanced Critical Infrastructure Security

Whether it's unwanted elements, natural disasters, terrorism, criminal activities, or cyber threats, the damage to these assets can have far-reaching implications, impacting citizens' well-being and a nation's security and economy. Securing critical infrastructure has always been a top priority for governments and organisations worldwide. Traditional security measures, such as physical guards and surveillance cameras, have been in place for years, providing some level of protection. However, they often fall short of addressing the scale and complexity of modern security threats.

Addressing the ever-evolving changes and challenges in critical infrastructure protection requires an integrated yet modular solution that enhances productivity, profitability, and workforce safety in critical operations. This is where Videonetics’ in-depth understanding of the security and operational requirements in critical infrastructure sectors such as energy, oil and gas, and defence manufacturing becomes pivotal. Leveraging this expertise, Videonetics offers an AI-powered Unified Video Management Platform specifically designed to fortify critical infrastructure security. Let's explore the key features and benefits that make this platform the gateway to improved security.

Real-time Insights for Enhanced Security:

At the core of Videonetics' approach lies the power of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. The company's AI-powered Unified Video Management Platform enables operators to stay ahead of regulatory changes and improve critical infrastructure security by providing functional excellence in any challenging situation or environment. With real-time insights and predictive analysis, security personnel can swiftly detect and respond to potential threats, unauthorised access, and hazards, safeguarding the workforce, and assets.

Monitoring Human Behavior for Proactive Measures:

Videonetics' AI-powered video analytics go beyond simple threat detection. The platform monitors human behaviour to aid in forensic investigations and post-incident analysis. This includes identifying habitual offenders, performing attribute searches, recognising gestures, detecting people loitering, as well as monitoring crowd formation, assault, and rioting. Such heightened situational awareness empowers operators to proactively address security concerns.

Comprehensive Safety Measures:

Safety is a top priority in critical infrastructure operations, and Videonetics' solutions include a range of measures to protect both personnel and assets. These measures encompass personal protection equipment (PPE) detection, fire and smoke detection, abandoned object detection, person slip/fall/collapse detection, and emergency exit block detection. Additionally, the platform is equipped to swiftly detect incidents of theft, pillage, vandalism, and object tampering, ensuring a secure environment.

Close Integrations with other Systems & Devices:

Videonetics addresses intrusion concerns through its sophisticated platform, and close integration with 3rd party systems such as Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS), Access Control, Fire Alarm Systems, Thermal Cameras, Radars, etc. All the sub-systems can be placed on a map-view for a bird’s eye view of the entire facility. Furthermore, the platform offers a range of vehicular analytics, such as ANPR, vehicle entry and exit monitoring, detecting vehicles that are over-speeding within the facility, moving in wrong directions, parked in unauthorised areas, and even detect accidents.
