Dr. Banerjee points out that the typical command and control center of an airport, seaport, mass transit hub, utility or city center is a place with input from a number of different silos.

That is what Physical Security Information (PSIM) is all about, he says, and it is what Nice’s Situator software offers to security personnel. It’s the ability to pull the silos together and know what to do next.
