Furthermore, these facilities can be big and complex, posing significant security challenges. so it’s tough to keep them safe. Unauthorized access, internal theft, and data breaches can disrupt operations, leading to significant financial losses and damage to reputation.

These measures are bolstered by the presence of control room officers and mobile patrols that provide an additional layer of surveillance and rapid response to any incidents.
