Access control for government buildings
There are an estimated 5.7 million people working in the public sector across the central and local government branches. The buildings where these people work often house huge workforces, as well as private data about individuals like addresses, contact information, healthcare records, and financial data. It is therefore essential that these facilities are protected by extremely robust security. Any breach of the building or its systems would be catastrophic.
With so many people coming and going and such a significant requirement for security, finding a balance between protection and convenience in access control for government buildings can be challenging. The public sector is extremely hierarchical, and different groups of people are allowed access to different parts of a building based on their role. An effective access control system needs to make it easy to manage such complex requirements.
