How secure do you think your underground infrastructure really is?

Railways, Utilities (Electrical & Water), Defence installations and Telecommunications carriers all have in common a concern for the physical security of their in-ground infrastructure.

Information technology is more advanced than ever before but physical carriage infrastructure can still be extremely vulnerable to;

  • Vandalism
  • Sabotage
  • Accidental Damage
  • Terrorism
  • Illegal and unauthorised data theft or other commercially damaging interference
  • Theft of physical infrastructure materials
  • Industrial Espionage

Infrastructure owners also face the possibility of litigation for damage or injury arising from

  • Ill-fitting/missing pit lids which could injure passers by
  • Hazards caused through unauthorised or mischievous removal of pit lids
  • Customer losses caused through downtime of damaged infrastructure
  • Inferior product installations

With the increased demand for security solutions for business, such as CCTV and Alarm Systems, the problems of securing the security-platform infrastructure cannot be overlooked and protection of the security system cabling can become a separate security issue in itself.
