Critec have over 28 years experience in CNI security protection.
Critec have been advising on Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) security requirements since our formation in 2001 and our MD has been involved in CNI security projects since 1987; initially in the water and nuclear industries and more recently in gas and electricity distribution.
We work with the client organisation to identify the individual critical assets based on numerous risk and threat scenarios; assessing time to repair, spares availability, impact of catastrophic loss (including reputational damage) and associated costs. We then liaise with the response organisations to assess the required response time.
Only when all the variables are known, and it has been determined that physical and electronic security protection offer the most cost effective solution, will we proceed to design suitable deterrant, delay, detection and verification measures, often in multiple layers, to achieve the required physical standoff and intrusion delays to prevent the asset from being compromised in the period between detection and the arrival of the response authorities.
Even within this specialist area, we have undertaken quite diverse commissions including;
Full design and specification of anti-terrorist measures to water processing facility
Development of testing regime, client handover representation and demonstration to government sanctioning authority on 27 gas and electric transmission security upgrade projects
Full project management and client representation on security management systems upgrades at 4 nuclear power stations
Production of emergency response procedure manuals for water processing facility
Technical management of Access control and CCTV upgrades at Hydro Electric power station
