National security is not easy. Current events around the globe make things more difficult. Therefore, strategies that protected people and properties back then might no longer work now.
Countries need to adapt to the changing times. While encouraging citizens for volunteer service to bolster the armed forces is effective, a combination of other strategies can improve security goals. This is where technology comes in.
Big Brother Gets Smarter
In the past, close observation of people was limited to key government properties and commercial spaces. You only saw a few cameras in certain places. These days, cameras are everywhere. They are visible in big cities and in security-sensitive areas, with innovative systems driving every function.
Today, observation through video combines advanced hardware and software that improve security. Government bureaus and organisations can also share information over secure networks when identifying threats or investigating unusual activities.
A New Kind of Ink
Law enforcement identify groups and persons of interest by their tattoos. Certain tattoos can indicate a connection with certain groups. They also provide identification for people who have arrest records. That is all about to change because you may soon link tattoos with security.
What used to imply defiance might mean, in the near future, adherence to security measures. The security tattoo is the next step in personal authentication because it carries your unique information. The technology is currently under consideration for medical and banking use. Law enforcement in airports and cities may explore this technology, too.
There are other advances in security. More may come as nations address changing times. The bottom line is efforts are underway to ensure your safety and protection.
