In response to terrorist attacks and malicious acts, the security market has experienced steady growth over the past twenty years. Sensitive sites and critical infrastructures are increasingly vulnerable for two reasons: the first is the increase in terrorist attacks, making it necessary to increase protection of public places (airports, stadiums, train stations, etc.), OVIs (dams, hospitals, power plants, etc.) and industrial sites; the second is cyberattacks. Indeed, security systems must also be protected against cyberattacks.
Security directives have been issued in the French military planning law and various white papers relating to domestic security in order to initiate the necessary measures to protect sensitive sites.
Security is now a primary concern for all industrial stakeholders and OVIs, which are intent on protecting people, the environment, their production tools and their infrastructures.
