Overview of the global energy security market
The Ukraine-Russia gas dispute in early 2009 was recorded as the largest natural gas supply crisis seen in Europe. The accelerating trend of integrated electricity grids can lead to cascading blackouts and affect multiple economies simultaneously, says the IEA. Hence, organizations and establishments are facing the challenge of implementing energy supply as a smooth flow of communication operations, public safety systems, transportation systems, industrial operations, and healthcare. Energy security has become a strategic asset, which can be the foundation for growth for the most powerful economies in the world such as U.S. On the other hand, developing economies are more focused on the optimum utilization of available resources to sustain their economies firmly on the track of growth.
Most planned attacks on well-established energy sites are highly complex in nature. Therefore, to curb these complex attacks efficiently refined tools and tactics are required. Cyber and network security-related threats continue to be a major concern for government energy establishments. Thus, government establishments need to keep up-to-date with the regulatory and compliance environment to the ever-changing intricate security threats.
The global energy security market experiences threats which can be acts of terror, natural disasters, cyber threats, or combination of these threats. The technologies employed by the energy security industry include: Video and CCTV surveillance, microwave intrusion detection, biometric and card readers, RFID tracking and personal tracking, transport security, alarm systems, and fire detection and warning systems. To combat complex energy security threats such as physical attacks, insider threat, cyber threats, and other threats, a single integrated solution is the need of the hour. Such a solution would sync physical security with network security to build a comprehensive solution.
