Canaveral Port Authority will utilize the $1.6 million awarded from 2014 Port Security Grant Funding for a new port-wide cyber-security program, software that integrates existing security systems and resources into a single uniformed platform and CCTV expansion into new cargo facilities.

With $225,000 of the funding, the Port Authority will initiate a phased comprehensive plan to assess, develop and implement a Port-wide cyber security program. Phase one will include identifying needed resources, including personnel, equipment and software.

The Port Authority will utilize $728,438 toward deployment of Maritime Situation Awareness and Response software. It allows for planning, response and analysis with full interoperability and integration of existing surveillance system and other resources.

"This software provides connectivity of our personnel and current security investments into a single and unified platform," said Port Canaveral CEO John E. Walsh. "It will allow everyone in the operational chain to know what is happening and how to respond, which reduces the risk of human error, improves response, and reduces operating costs. In addition to improving communication among personnel, it also will provide a synchronized operation and task automation related to security cameras, sensors and devices, communication systems, data sources and operating procedures."

The remaining $711,112 will be used for purchasing CCTV cameras for the Port’s new container terminal and backup area.

Walsh added, "With the March 2015 opening of a new container terminal that we have partnered with GT USA to operate, we are pleased this grant will help us with state-of-the-art technical security as we expand our cargo operations for the growing central Florida market. We look forward to moving ahead as GT USA completes the federal approval process currently in progress."
