A June 2018 report on public safety analytics states - “The rise in criminal activities and terrorist attacks has led to the introduction of data analytics in public safety solutions and services, with an objective to make them ultra-efficient.” Every second counts in threat detection and neutralization. In the world of security, efficiency means taking the best possible action in the shortest amount of time.
While the traditional video surveillance cameras continue to play an important role in a security infrastructure, the amount of video data that can be efficiently and effectively monitored and analyzed far exceeds the scalable range of human resources. Hence, video analytics has been gaining grounds to augment human operators. However, CCTVs are just one of many critical data sources that must be leveraged to accelerate effective actions.
In the aforementioned report, another relevant finding emerges - “The rise in the social media analytics platforms could be attributed to the rapid adoption of social media analytics solutions among organizations to prevent citizens from emergencies, such as fire, overcrowding, criminal activities, and natural calamities.” Social media consists of a very diverse set of data – text, audio, video and image – and, as the report indicates, plays an increasingly valuable role in providing real-time intelligence for addressing security and safety concerns.
Security operations must now be able to aggregate data from any relevant sources (e.g. CCTVs, social media, audio sensors, broadcast news, etc.) of different formats, perform real-time data analysis, and provide the optimal workflow for operators to address the threat. Vidsys, a leader in Converged Security Information Management, and Micro Focus a leader in AI (Artificial Intelligence) powered analytics, have partnered up to address just that by centralizing and automating these processes in one fully integrated solution – Intelligent GSOC.
