Securing high-value assets within the critical infrastructure market presents its own set of unique challenges. Government security mandates such as those described in NERC’s CIP-014-2 for Physical Security Protection and CIP-011-2 for Cyber Security Information Protection have been introduced to help the industry standardize security requirements. Oil & natural gas production, refining, storage, and transmission facilities contain various critical assets with a number of vulnerabilities that require secure perimeters around the facilities. Electronic security system measures such as a Perimeter Intrusion Detection and Assessment System (PIDAS), Access Control System (ACS), and Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV), integrated with a layered network of sensors, and coupled with physical barriers provide a given facility’s security operator the ability to deter, detect, deny, delay, and defend against intrusions or attacks.
