Report your stolen car to the police immediately.What about Carjacking?Carjacking — stealing a car by force — has captured headlines in the last few years. Carjacking isthe violent form of motor vehicle theft. It is a serious threat to our personal safety because the thiefuses force and fear to rob our car from us. Sometimes the car owner or other occupants arekidnapped during a carjacking, and if lucky will be dropped off nearby unharmed. The worst casescenario occurs when you are transported to a secondary crime scene, which is usually moredangerous than the original confrontation. Those not so lucky victims have suffered other crimeslike rape, aggravated assault, and even homicide.The crime of carjacking can be traumatic to our everyday lives because it creates fear in thecommon act of driving a car. Victims of carjacking have reported being unable to drive a car againwhile others required months of therapy. Others have become so hypersensitive, that embarrassingand dangerous situations have arisen in response to their fear when someone unwittinglyapproached their car on foot.The reason carjacking got started is because of the sophistication and prevalence of new anti-theftdevices and alarm systems. New car alarms, steering wheel locking systems, Chip-integratedignition switches and stolen vehicle locators made it tougher on the auto thief. Unfortunately for us,poorly motivated and unskilled car thieves have adapted by becoming more violent to get the carsthey need and dont think twice about using force against us.Popular carjacking locations are parking lots, shopping centres, fuel stations, car washes,convenience stores, ATMs, hotels, valet parking, fast-food drive-thru, and outside of retail stores. Arisky, but popular location for the carjacker is a roadway intersection with a stoplight. A carjacker willjump out of another vehicle, pull open your unlocked drivers’ door, and force you to get out. Therehave been incidents where well-meaning citizens got into a high-speed chase following carjackersand ended up being victims themselves.The "Bump" and CarjackAnother copycat scheme used by carjackers is to bump your car from behind to get you to pull overand stop. The carjacker, and his accomplice, will follow the intended victim to a suitable locationwith good escape routes and few witnesses. The carjacker will crash into the back of your vehicle atlow speed and "bump" you with enough force to make you believe a traffic accident had justoccurred. Typically, the drivers of both vehicles pull over, stop, and get out discussing the damage.At this point the carjacker robs you of your vehicle, its’ contents, and drives away. The carjackerscar gets driven away by the accomplice. Hopefully you wont be injured during the exchange.What Should You Do?Carjacking of parked vehicles depends on the car owner being inattentive to their surroundings.Carjackers, like street robbers, prefer the element of surprise. Most victims say they never saw thecarjacker until they appeared at their car door. To reduce your risk of being carjacked, somepreventative actions are listed below:
Appro oach your car with th key in h he hand. Look around, in k nside, and undernea the car before ath getting in. Keep your car d doors locke and win dows rolle up at all times whille you are driving. ed ed Be es specially a alert at inte ersections, fuel stations, ATMs, shoppin malls, and conve , ng a enience and ggrocery stores — all are window of opportunity for carjackers . a ws c Park i well-ligh in hted areas with good visibility, close to wa c alkways, st tores and people. p Dont park in isoolated or vi isually obs structed are near walls or hea foliage eas w avy e. Use v valet parkin or an attended ga rage, if you a wom driving alone. ng ure man g As yo walk to y ou your car be alert to suspicious persons sitting in car e rs.

We need security - even o dbeefore our b birth inside mother’s womb. We take a caution for security a home, of e c at ffice, socie and etyduuring trave Today, threat ha new de el. as efinition in the form of terroris attacks, fire, acc st cidents,inf formation l loss, data corruption, cyber-cri me, mob attacks, hu a uman bomb car bom bs, mbs, mobile shotgu missiles bio attacks, poiso un, s, onous gas, communication intrusions etc Today fo survival of any c. orpeerson, orga anization o industry, we need to mitigat all these threats & risks and in this p or te e processreqquire to invvent new mmeans & ways to ma ke security as part of productiv and pro w y f vity ofitability.Seecurity: Meaning & Essence for organi zation fSeecurity is k kind of structures an process nd ses that provide or improve s security as a conditio and onch heck to ens sure safety continuity and reliiability of people, pro y, p operty, equ uipment, information good n,will, establis shment, inddustry, com mmunity, e environme and na ent ation.

Today, security has very holistic approach and it includes personal security, equipment security,health security, data security, computer security, environment security and community security. Allthese aspects are very much applicable in the context of GAIL as an organization. Modern daycompetitive business & globalization compels organizations to give more importance on security oftheir personnel, equipment, assets, information and data as part of productivity and profitability.Almost all the industries; like oil and gas, exploration, railway, auto, mining, pharmaceutical andchemical, banking, manufacturing , aviation, tourism, power and metal industries etc. requiresecurity at first place for achieving their goals and targets.Security as part of productivity and profitabilitySecurity is no doubt very integral part of productivity and profitability. Various kind of securityoptions can be enforced which directly or indirectly contribute the productivity and profitability of theorganization in following ways:Access Control Security systemThe Access Control security systems is basically designed to protect homes, offices, shops,buildings, malls, plants etc. commencing forced action or entry and minimizes the chances ofburglary or mugging in. This kind of security is more relevant in huge organizations and governmentadministration like GAIL which possess highly sophisticated process mechanisms & inherent risk offire and hazard. A) Main gate entry Main gate security is very important and it is first place from where a mischievous activity should be destroyed. Lapse in security may result in attack, theft, robbery, kidnapping/ abduction and loss of people & wealth to any organization. Therefore, Photo ID card system is very important tool which can restrict the unwanted people to enter in our plants & offices. Card based entry has all the benefits associated with digital identities, which go beyond security; e.g. tracking of manpower, building up a visitor’s database, assisting manpower traffic control, facilitating frequent head counts. Punching card system can monitor the entry and exit time of employees & work force and thus provides the means for checking their working hours and inculcating discipline & punctuality. B) Energy saving and Automation Now let us see how the present day access control system can reduce the cost and contribute to profitability. E.g. when an employee (card holder) penetrates the building after long hours, in that situation one can automatically activate area lightening/ air conditioning and when he goes out area lightening/ air conditioning may be switched off. In this way, organization can save the energy consumption. In case of fire, an individual can examine CCTV Video estimate situations to make them under control by unlocking doors and direct fans for safety and security in order for the swelling up of the smoke and sprinkling action. In this way, we can reduce / eliminate the damage without any delay and further course of action can be directed.Information & data securityInformation technology’s primary purpose is to make the enterprise employees as productive,efficient and effective at doing their jobs as possible. Laptops, portable memory and even smart
devices are part of that efficiency/productivity environment, allowing for work to get done on fromthe remote place even in the train, plane, at a client site or at an employees home.Today, Management information system, enterprise resource planning, online & real time dataaccess etc. are the key for any business. Information security means protecting information andinformation systems from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, perusal,inspection, recording or destruction. In lack of information and computer security, data may bemade corrupt and whole Management Information system, Customer relation management,financial transaction, inventory management, operation and maintenance may be disrupted.Here, computer security also refers safeguarding data, network, theft of laptop, data storage device,software corruption and natural disaster like fire and earth quake. Authorized access to informationand decision making is delegated at various hierarchies in the organization. Protection ofinformation from un-authorized users is the demand of the business to protect company interest.E.g. if any information is leaked to competitors about company’s business plan, product launch,research and development, product specification, ingredients, process etc. , it may be suicidal fororganization’s business growth, profitability and sustainability.Surveillance & Video monitoringThrough surveillance, we can monitor and observe the behavior, activities or other changinginformation usually of people. We can protect our installation and plants with terrorist attacks, theftand crime. Ssurveillance can be done from a distance by means of electronic equipment (such asCCTV cameras), or interception of electronically transmitted information (such as Internet traffic orphone calls). It may also refer to simple, relatively no- or low-technology methods such as humanintelligence agents and postal interception.We see that in all retail outlets, malls, industries etc. CCTV serve the purpose of securing the items& articles for sale, monitoring the production, processes, services, inventories in ware house etc.and thus optimize productivity & profitability with better control mechanism. Bar code is alsoextension of the security in retail industry & inventory management.With the benefit of IT & networking, surveillance can be done centrally at far distance at corporateoffice through CCTV cameras by the security head of the organization. It gives him true pictureabout the state of security at field level at various geographical locations.Mitigating the threats, attacks, natural calamity and counter action:Security of installations, government and private establishments, industries & people are veryimportant in today’s world of social unrest, economic imbalance, regionalism, communalism, crossborder activities, terrorism & natural disaster like flood, earth quake, tsunami, thunder storms etc.Our country is very much affected by all above reasons & these reasons are still very much alive.Parliament and 26/11 Mumbai attacks, bomb attacks in Delhi, Ahmedabad & other places, earthquake in Gujarat, Tsunami, flood in Bihar, H.P. etc. are burning examples.An organization cannot ignore these threats & risks as it may result in huge disaster, economical &human life loss. For dealing with all these threats and risks, security personnel should be fullyequipped with arms & security support systems like barricade, watch towers, metal gate, metaldetector, bomb disposal squad, sniffer dogs, fire proof clothing, speed breaker, communicationgadgets e.g. w-talkie , warning alarms, tyre buster etc. & disaster management plan should exist inthe organization. Counter measures with “Six Ds” approach (deny, deter, delay, detect, degrade anddestroy) is the key. Physical check of vehicle & people is very important to counter the risk/threat atvery first stage.
Plant security is very important for sensitive industry like GAIL. Security has role in prevention of fire& accidents by controlling items responsible for triggering fire like matchbox, cigarettes & lightersetc. and motion of vehicles as well. Security plays important role in dealing with local villagers,community and project affected people in bringing harmony & peace at plant locations.Thus, Physical security is must for any organisation for its smooth operation & un-interruptedproduction & at the same time prevention in loss and theft of inventories and finished goods.Security arrangement also contributes in building image and reputation of an organization aboutalertness & preparedness for mitigating the threats. It brings psychological fear to conspirators &feeling of security among employees & workforce.Selection of security system & benefitsSelection of any security system is very important to have desired cost benefit analysis andimproved productivity & profitability. It is important to analyze threats and risk around environmentand accordingly mitigation strategies, counter measures should be developed and integrated. Bothmanual and system based security system are equally important and complementary to each other.Wide range of system based security solution such as burglar alarms, hard – wired mechanisms,electronic locking system, motion detectors and cameras surveillance systems are available.System based security system can reduce the cost as well eliminate the human intervention for anyslippage.In the context of GAIL, security system has more importance due to its pipeline network across thecountry. Pipeline sabotage is one of the weapons of choice for terrorist attacks. Few days back inSyria, gas pipeline has been blasted by terrorist. Helicopter and foot patrolling of pipeline networkare other dimensions of security to assure the health of pipeline & thus ascertain operationalefficiency.ConclusionEnterprises around the globe are increasingly concerned about the risk in cyber threats and therising number of security risks in public domain. In todays economy, budgets are being reducedand various departments are being asked to cut resources especially manpower. So, risks are up &budgets are down. The risk realities are exploited by anyone who sees the downturn/ relaxation insecurity enforcement and thus takes opportunity for exploitation.Discontented employees are also walking away with valued information assets, while businessesscale back on defense in an effort to become more productive. And its happening at a time when anenterprise can ill afford downtime, decreased productivity, stolen data, lost sales, and a damagedenterprise reputation. Now single point external attacks have moved toward multi-source externalattacks and even the model of the "trusted employee" is now challenge.Thus, we see that security has various dimensions like security by personnel for surveillance,checks, mitigation of the threats & counter action and system based security & aids e.g. accesscontrol, video monitoring, communication gadgets, automation etc. in safeguarding the people,information asset, equipment & property.These ways and means “as control mechanism “play very significant and important role for anorganization for achieving higher productivity and profitability by reducing the risks & improvingoperational and personal efficiency.
