The Threats Facing Information Systems:
Once your security DVR, access control, and other systems have been installed and the service is turned on and functioninal, the job is only halfway done. The next challenge for security managers is keeping the system running - businesses and other organizations simply cannot afford to be without their security system.
What makes continuous operation a challenge is the fact that security applications, from an electrical point-of-view, are sitting ducks for a number of reasons:
- Excess current can enter through almost all items in the subsystem (such as power sources, cameras, peripherals, and communications cables).
- Excess current can destroy vital items in a subsystem (such as silicon items, circuit board traces, and magnetic media).
- Security subsystems are usually assembled out of components from different manufacturers. As a result, many systems have equipment that handle power and signal grounding in the different ways.
- Communications cables are vulnerable from outside the building to breakage, crosses, lightning, etc., and those cables lead directly to you.
