Chris Cavallo has dedicated the majority of his life working, teaching and mentoring others in the Security and Investigations industry’s for over 35 years. The Security industry has changed radically in the last 25 years and Chris and his partner in Bogota Luis Carlos has always stayed ahead of the changing technologies his clients aware and part of this new environment which has become much more dependent on telecommunications, technology and systems integration driven.
Access Control Systems are primarily used to restrict entrance to a property, a building, or a room to un-authorized personnel. Electronic access control system grants access based on the credential presented whether it’s an ID card, or Biometric recognition. When access is granted, the door is unlocked for a predetermined time and the transaction is recorded. When access is refused, the door remains locked and the attempted access is recorded. The system will also monitor the door and alarm if the door is forced open or held open too long after being unlocked. As in all areas of the CSI-Secure Solutions offerings only the top providers of these technologies are represented by this firm and recommended based on the specific need of the client.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the wireless use of radio signals which enable the transference of data, for the purposes of identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. RFID tags contain electronically stored information. Some tags are powered by and read at short ranges (a few meters) via magnetic fields, others use a local power source such as a battery. Battery powered tags may operate at hundreds of meters. Unlike a bar code the tag does not necessarily need to be within line of sight of the reader, and may be part of the tracked object.
RFID tags are used in many industries. An RFID tag attached to a washing machine, automobile or computer during assembly can be used to track it once it leaves the plant. Pharmaceutical products or any devices can be tracked through factories or warehouses. Livestock and pets may have tags injected, allowing positive identification of the animal. On off-shore oil and gas platforms, for example, RFID tags are worn by personnel as a safety measure, allowing them to be located 24 hours a day and to be quickly found in emergencies.
GPS-Global Positioning Satellite GPS vehicle tracking can be invaluable for not only ensuring productivity of fleet of vehicles by monitoring all diagnostics such as gas consumption, air in tires, speed of vehicle and driver safety. CSI-Secure Solutions can monitor real-time car tracking which can give you up-to-the-moment location updates. If you need to know if your driver has gone off a pre-scheduled course, or your kids are no where to be found then CSI Secure Solutions vehicle tracking devices can provide your Business with the required information. Our detailed reports will tell you exactly where a vehicle has been, and how fast it was going and ensure the companies driving policies
CSI-Secure Solutions have partnered with many of the top CCTV manufacturers in the industry. Here are just a few that CSI has worked with in the last 15 years: Axis Communications the manufacturer of the first IP cameras, FLIR known for making the top Thermal cameras in the world Closed-circuit television (CCTV), Panasonic and Sony to name a few. The primary purpose and use of video cameras is to transmit signals to a specific place such as a Command and Control Center, on a limited set of monitors. Most CCTV systems are used for surveillance purposes in areas that may need monitoring such as banks, casinos, airports, seaports, manufacturing facilities, office buildings, city’s and municipalities, military installations, and oil/gas facilities.
Biometrics is the identification of humans by their characteristics or traits. Biometrics in the Security industry is a form of identification used for access control purposes. It is also used to identify individuals in groups that are under surveillance. Biometric identifiers are the distinctive, measurable characteristics used to label and describe individuals. Biometric identifiers are often categorized as physiological versus behavioral characteristics. Physiological characteristics are related to the shape of the body. Examples include, but are not limited to fingerprint, face recognition, DNA, Palm print, hand geometry, iris recognition, retina and odor/scent. Behavioral characteristics are related to the pattern of behavior of a person, including but not limited to: typing rhythm, gait, and voice.
More traditional means of access control include token-based identification systems, such as a driver’s license or passport, and knowledge-based identification systems, such as a password or personal identification number.
One of the largest and Daily Security Threats in the World today, especially in the US but specifically to Business’s is the damage caused when “Hacked ” by unknown sources and having the Company information exposed regardless if for disruption of Business, to obtain Competitive Intelligence, Personal Records or Financial information. This is one of the fastest growing segments of the Security Industry which is why CSI-Secure Solutions has assembled a team of experts to address this monumental problem. Our Cyber Security Specialists (CSS) can create the necessary infrastructure to prevent any type of attack whether internal or external and create a countermeasure response to offset any type of invasion into the Corporations Network or System. CSI will also create a preventative maintenance model so such “threatening events” can be eliminated before an attack takes place. In a post attack scenario, we will discover, report and produce a Counter-Measure plan.
