Integrated Security Management For Port Of Los Angeles

Qognify : 18 May, 2010  (Application Story)
Busy international container port takes Nice Situator for integrated security management of disparate systems for improved situational awareness
The Port of Los Angeles has begun implementation of Nice Situator, an open platform situation management solution. The Nice solution will provide an integrated command and control platform to fuse, correlate and analyze information across disparate security systems. In addition, it will enhance inter-agency collaboration and response capabilities for the Port of Los Angeles.

The Port of Los Angeles is the busiest container port in the United States and one of the largest cruise ship centers on the US West Coast, transporting more than 850,000 passengers annually. Nice Situator will help the Port improve its situational awareness and incident response capabilities to ensure the safety and security of passengers and continuity of operations, by fusing siloed systems into an integrated command and control platform, and by correlating and analyzing these different sources of security information.

Through its integration capabilities, Nice Situator will also seamlessly connect the Port of Los Angeles with external agencies to enhance the Port's ability to collaborate, share information and respond to incidents. In addition, the Port will use Situator to automate its response plans for managing incidents, ensuring that standard operating procedures and best practices are always followed. All activity that is managed through NICE Situator is also logged by the system, so Port officials will be able to see what actions were taken, under what conditions, when and by whom.

"Security is unquestionably a top priority for us," said Julia Kirwan, the Port Police Technology Manager for the Port of Los Angeles. "Nice Situator enhances our security capabilities by connecting the dots across all of our available information sources, and by streamlining and coordinating our response actions. It facilitates operational response so that field personnel and incident commanders know what's happening and what to do."

"We are honoured to have been selected by The Port of Los Angeles for this important security project," said Chris Wooten, President, Nice Security Americas. "The Port of Los Angeles is well-known for its progressive security measures. The addition of Nice Situator, along with Nice's market leading domain expertise in securing ports, will help the Port leverage all of its security technologies and resources to the fullest to ensure the safety and security of the Port and its millions of passengers."

Nice Situator is a situation management software platform that enables automatic situation planning, response and analysis in real time, as well as thorough post incident reviews and investigations. Nice Situator integrates to a wide array of sensors and security systems, analyzing and correlating information to help organizations connect the dots and improve situational awareness, incident response and decision-making. Nice Situator's generic gateways and open architecture make it possible to integrate to virtually any existing or future security device, system, or data source. Organizations that deploy Nice Situator are not constrained to specific types or brands of security solutions but rather can chose the solutions that best satisfy their security needs. With Nice Situator, organizations can fuse many different types of security devices and systems into a unified platform, including: access control, video systems, perimeter intrusion sensors, location tracking (RFID, GPS), panic buttons, environmental sensors, communication devices, and much more. Through this integration, Nice Situator is able to present a Common Operating Picture (COP), with real-time alerts and information from all integrated systems displayed on an intuitive multi-Iayered Geographical Information System (GIS)-based interface, enabling security operators to continuously monitor and interact with systems, people and assets for a higher level of situational awareness. Nice Situator also provides a framework for automating complex response workflows and standard operating procedures (SOPs).
