Energy Insecurity Affects Us All

Hundreds of thousands of miles of piped fuel keep industries churning and homes warm around the world. Until they don’t. The energy industry faces three security challenges that place our entire emergency infrastructure and, therefore, our hospitals, public services and transportation at risk.

  • Attacks and physical destruction, such as by terrorists or extreme weather
  • Oil leaks that cause environmental hazards 
  • Remote and inaccessible pipeline locations that are difficult to monitor

When an Oil & Gas company was faced with vandalism across multiple states, it needed to deploy security rapidly. With V5 Systems portable solutions, learn how systems integrator Kris Greiner of Solbreez Security Solutions secured hundreds of vital sites in less than four months . This bolstered safety for personnel, reduced environmental risk significantly, and saved the company $70 million annually.

Can Conference Security Bolster a City’s Economy?

Hosting Oracle OpenWorld 2018, San Francisco’s Moscone Center is nearing completion of a $500-million upgrade that will add half-a-million square feet of contiguous meeting space. Nationwide, other cities are doing the same in a ferocious competition to attract business and tourism dollars. But acres of shiny new floor-space, blazing-fast Wi-Fi and luxury lodgings won’t mean much if attendees feel unsafe at convention facilities, most of which are located in the heart of major urban centers. Read how an unconventional approach is putting San Francisco ahead of the pack.
