Director of Security Services for the Public Transport Authority
The Public Transport Authority (PTA) is the government agency that oversees Western Australia’s public transit infrastructure. Chartered with serving more than two million people in the Perth metropolitan area as well as more than 240 towns across the State, the PTA connects people and places safely and securely. As part of PTA’s security focus, the organization initiated an innovative effort that called for the installation of an extensive, closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance and monitoring system. Additionally, the project required upgrading PTA’s communications network and storage foundation to accommodate the need to send, receive, store and archive massive amounts of data from the large number of video cameras.
