Nice Systems , a provider of solutions that enable enterprises and security organizations to extract insight from interactions, transactions and surveillance to drive business performance, reduce risk and ensure safety, announced the Port of Los Angeles has implemented Nice open platform situation management solution. The Nice solution will provide an integrated command and control platform to fuse, correlate and analyze information across disparate security systems. In addition, it will enhance interagency collaboration and response capabilities for the Port of Los Angeles.
The Port of Los Angeles is the busiest container port in the U.S. and one of the largest cruise ship centers on the US West Coast, transporting more than 850,000 passengers annually. The Nice management system will help the port improve its situational awareness and incident response capabilities to ensure the safety and security of passengers and continuity of operations, by fusing siloed systems into an integrated command and control platform, and by correlating and analyzing these different sources of security information.
Through its integration capabilities, the solution will also connect the port of Los Angeles with external agencies to enhance the port's ability to collaborate, share information and respond to incidents. In addition, the port will use the solution to automate its response plans for managing incidents, ensuring that standard operating procedures and best practices are always followed. All activity that is managed through Nice management is also logged by the system, so port officials will be able to see what actions were taken, under what conditions, when and by whom.
"Security is unquestionably a top priority for us," said Julia Kirwan, the Port Police Technology Manager for the Port of Los Angeles. The Nice management system "enhances our security capabilities by connecting the dots across all of our available information sources, and by streamlining and coordinating our response actions. It facilitates operational response so that field personnel and incident commanders know what's happening and what to do."
