Protect Energy & Utility Facilities with a Sophisticated AI Technology

It's the industry that keeps all the lights on. It powers almost everything we do in our day-to-day lives - from working from home to traveling to making important phone calls to keeping us all safe, and because of this, protecting the industry is vital. The energy sector connects all critical infrastructure sectors from the food and agriculture sector to healthcare to the financial services sector. The US economy cannot function without this industry.

A cyber energy breach could have widespread regional power loss, incapacitated communication networks, and disabled emergency services, leaving regions vulnerable and inaccessible to necessary resources and aid during times of crisis. Because of this, the US Department of Energy deems cybersecurity in the energy sector "one of the nation's most important and complex national security challenges," with the energy infrastructure being "a key target for adversaries."

Secure your Facility with a Sophisticated AI Access Control Technology

While we're mainly concerned about a potential cybersecurity breach on our energy and utilities, it's important to note that two out of ten decision factors and the most significant indicators that bad actors will target a facility are the facility's physical security. If a facility's physical security looks vulnerable, then there's a strong chance that observers will assume that its cybersecurity receives the same amount of attention. With Alcatraz AI, you can provide your organization with a proven, sophisticated, and modern physical security solution equipped to protect all your assets.
