How Video Surveillance Secures Critical Infrastructure

Learn more



Securing critical infrastructure is vital to everyday life. Our range of mobile video surveillance solutions protects the sites that feed your community.

Why is Critical Infrastructure Security so Important?

There are 16 critical infrastructure sectors in the United States, including assets, systems, and networks - both physical and virtual. They are essential for the daily operations of the country.

Any security incident that led to the failure of one of these sectors would have catastrophic impacts on society.

Providing comprehensive security at remote, rural, or complex sites is a significant challenge with plenty of uncertainties.

Critical infrastructure sites may be situated across deserts, mountains, and other challenging terrain. Pipelines, for example, can be up to 2.5 football fields long, providing power and water to nearby communities.

But no matter the extent of the challenge, protecting these sites is vital. People rely on them for essential activities: we cross bridges, drink clean water, fill gas tanks, heal at hospitals, and turn on the lights.

What Is Critical Infrastructure?

Critical infrastructure includes highways, bridges, tunnels, railways, utilities, and buildings. These are essential for sustaining the rhythm of daily life.

Within this intricate network, transportation, commerce, clean water, and electricity find their lifelines, relying on these essential systems for seamless functionality.

If an outage occurs, one system is likely to affect another.

What is the Impact of Poor Security at Critical Infrastructure?

Consider a scenario with a major power grid failure in a region. This could be due to weather, a natural disaster, equipment malfunction, or a physical attack.

The areas of disruption, various impactive aspects of daily life:

  • Transportation: Traffic lights cease to function, leading to traffic congestion and potential accidents

  • Water and sanitation: Water treatment plans may not pump water, leading to disruptions in clean water supply.

  • Public safety is at risk. Emergency response teams are not responding effectively to emergencies. This can lead to loss of life and disruption in the community.

Mobile Video Surveillance For Critical Infrastructure

How Do Mobile Surveillance Cameras Secure Critical Infrastructure? 

Deploying a WCCTV mobile surveillance unit to protect critical infrastructure can offer several advantages.

Here are some key benefits:

  1. Flexibility and Mobility: WCCTV’s surveillance trailers can be easily deployed and relocated. They provide the flexibility to monitor multiple critical infrastructure sites or respond to emerging threats in different locations.

  2. Rapid Response: They offer the ability for a quick response to security incidents or suspicious activities near critical infrastructure sites. Security personnel can assess threats in real time and take the appropriate action.

  3. Situational Awareness: They capture real-time video footage and monitor activities around critical infrastructure sites. This creates an additional layer of situational awareness. This information can help security teams detect potential threats, identify vulnerabilities, and make informed decisions regarding security measures and resource allocation.

  4. Deterrence: It is easily visible at 20ft tall and is well-known to discourage potential criminals or individuals with malicious intent. Surveillance in an area discourages illegal activities, such as unauthorized access and vandalism.

  5. Remote monitoring capabilities are enabled by WCCTV's advanced technology, such as high-resolution cameras. Live voice-down speakers allow 24/7/365 monitoring and reduce the need for constant physical presence on-site.

  6. Cost-Effectiveness: They can be deployed temporarily as needed, avoiding the expense of constructing permanent structures. Additionally, mobile units can cover multiple sites, optimizing resource allocation and minimizing overall security costs.

  7. Scalability: They provide a scalable solution that can be tailored to meet the needs of individual facilities, ensuring appropriate coverage and protection.

By leveraging mobile surveillance units, critical infrastructure in the USA can benefit from all of the above.
