Homeland Security deals with the protection and guarding of the homeland against implicit and non-military threats. While the armed forces deal with external threats to the nation’s sovereignty and interests, risks and issues that arise within territory have to be handled by a separate apparatus with a more discreet approach. This is the purview of homeland security.

IFF Lab’s Bounty of Solutions For Homeland Security


Like the threats it is meant to counter, homeland security manifests in different spheres, and has to be addressed from multiple angles. An entity that poses threat must be disabled or incapacitated before it acts, and untoward events must be closely analyzed and investigated in their aftermath for prevention in the future. The concerns of homeland security range from espionage and intelligence-gathering, to terrorism and domestic disturbances.

IFF Lab provides a diverse range of services to strengthen homeland security.

Airports


Airports are the primary point of ingress/egress for human traffic in a country and witness a high volume of commutation. Transit facilities process immigration and emigration and require stringent security and utmost caution. The different categories of people present at an airport include not only passengers and airline crew, but also ground staff and security personnel. Moreover, aircraft are vehicles that are both, powerful as well as brittle, and both aspects of these can be exploited by dangerous parties. As they are susceptible to hijack attempts and other acts of terrorism, airplanes need to be entrusted to facilities that have strict and rigid security arrangements.

At IFF, we provide consulting in internationally standardized methods employed to keep areas in and around airports safe and secure.

Ports


Global trade relies on the shipping industry, and ports are the nodes for shipping routes. More importantly, a country’s economy relies heavily on its ports. If airports handle human resources, Ports handle resources in the form of raw material or finished goods. Zones within or adjacent to docks store these commodities, post-importing or prior to export. In short, ports and shipyards are indispensable to the homeland’s interests. It is imperative, therefore, to make these facilities impenetrable. This can be done using CCTV camera networks, heat sensors in critical and access-restricted areas, motion-detectors installed around premises, and narrow AI capable of facial recognition. Entry and access of personnel can be limited by color-coded identity cards.

We are proud to claim expertise in this field. We have had success with completing security solutions for docks.

Logistics


The very act of transportation has a security requirement of its own. The Government often conducts processes that generate critical data. The data may be stored in any shape or form (transcripts, for instance), and would require physical transportation, as well as change hands multiple times while in transit. Similarly, other types of material would be transported physically along motorways by authorized personnel. Given how sensitive the transported items are, much care must be taken that they do not fall into the wrong hands, and reach the intended destination at the right time without any tampering. The entire logistics chain has to be secured, and this is done by adequate mechanisms which include deploying adequate guard personnel and setting up rigid and timed protocols for handover and delivery.

IFF is well-versed with providing logistics security to government organizations.

City Surveillance


Surveillance of a metropolitan area is very critical to homeland security, as areas of public access easily form soft targets for unscrupulous individuals who seek to cause domestic disturbances. Surveillance can be achieved by a network of Closed Circuit Television Cameras, GPS/NAVIC receivers, heat sensors (for vehicles and motion detection), and integrated Smart Policing. City surveillance can augment security arrangements made for visiting foreign dignitaries. Also, city surveillance can assist police with crime reduction. Most importantly, it ensures that citizens are safe and secure as they go about their lives.

Command & Control


There are existing C&C centers setup and operated by law enforcement authorities across the country. These centers provide an eagle-eye view of ongoing events. Should an untoward incident happen, units on the ground can respond quickly and be assisted by control personnel who are remotely monitoring the situation. The centers can use AI and Machine Learning to improve and assist with crisis management. C&C brings with it the benefits of real-time access. Information from incidents, crises and/or disasters may be transmitted in real time to the higher officials, and decisions made by them can be relayed to responders in real-time. Critical action can be taken quickly. All the while, law enforcement officials and civil defense personnel can observe from C&C posts and act accordingly.

Cyber Space


Infrastructure today transcends physical space and exists in the digital world as well, with massive concentrations of data servers combined with elaborate networks and backhauling. Information Technology is entrusted with multiple pieces of critical data, from credentials and identity to bank records and transactions. It is common for individuals and criminal organizations to take advantage of easily-available software tools to intrude into private, corporate or government networks, and cause much harm. Needless to say, cyberspace has unique security requirements.

We at IFF Lab we have methods to track down and expose hackers and other persons with malicious intent. We can easily salvage digital footprints left behind and help authorities with quickly apprehending such individuals or organizations.
