You constantly secure people always on the move

In recent years the transportation industry has become increasingly vulnerable to security risks. One of the greatest challenges is to protect train stations, where the rail industry faces a crucial need to guard passengers, employees, goods, infrastructure, and assets against possible threats. Train stations comprise diverse outdoor and indoor facilities such as tracks, underground passageways, bicycle and car parking areas, buildings, luggage storage facilities, and parked railway cars and engines. They therefore face daunting security issues which lead to security, safety and communication challenges such as:

  • Preventing and/or responding to diverse acts of terrorism such as bomb threats, suicide attacks and sabotage
  • Dealing with fire and explosion risks associated with the on-site storage of flammable liquids
  • Identifying and checking abandoned luggage
  • Managing a wide variety of different access authorizations
  • Evacuating in a timely and efficient manner
