Power Industry Security Challenges

Working in the power and energy industry, you know the many challenges involved with keeping employees safe, protecting assets, maintaining regulatory compliance and managing the day-to-day business operations. As security risks increase, the need to monitor and record evidence has become more important than ever.

The Benefits of Stealth Monitoring

Stealth Monitoring’s proactive video surveillance system has been extremely effective at helping to prevent copper theft, as well as improve threat detection and police response significantly. Our solution doesn’t wait for an alarm to alert the police. We utilize trained security operators and video analytics to watch for and evaluate suspicious activity in real time to catch activity in progress. Our operators can activate speakers at trespassers to let them know they are being monitored and if necessary, they will call police while the criminals are still on the property.

While many energy companies have security cameras, not all of them are being watched in real time. Some may even be monitored by employees who have other job responsibilities, which can be distracting. Monitoring is only as good as the quality of the staff watching the cameras.

Stealth’s team of trained security operators has one job: to watch live surveillance cameras and detect issues, then properly deal with authorities.

Stealth’s solutions have been successful at:

  • Replacing/supporting in-house monitoring centers to allow staff to focus on their core job responsibilities
  • Reducing copper thefts
  • Mitigating liability
  • Maintaining compliance with nerc-ferc security regulations
  • Safeguarding remote substations

Besides the energy sector, our clients include construction sites, shopping centers, apartment buildings, auto dealers, office buildings, industrial facilities, distribution yards, cannabis operations, and other businesses with outdoor assets. So, whether your own an electrical power company, renewable energy business or have additional properties in other industries, Stealth can help safeguard your business.
