Paper examines the importance of Food Defense as it relates to security measures that should be taken to protect the country's food supply
SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ISI Security, the industry leader in critical security solutions in the detention facilities market has recently published a position paper titled Food Defense: What it is, Why we need it, and Where Is It Going? The paper was authored by Ray Gilley, President and CEO at ISI Security. It is important to differentiate between food safety and food defense. Food defense refers to activities associated with protecting the nation's food supply from deliberate attacks of contamination or tampering. This concept is a unique and separate study that grew from concerns with potential terrorist attacks. Al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups have made food bioterrorism a stated goal.
"There is almost no other industry that has an impact on people like the food industry," stated Ray Gilley, President and CEO of ISI Security. "Protection of this key source is vital to ensuring the safety of the people of this country," continued Gilley.
The trend in the area of food defense is increased mandated regulation, with little or no government funding of the costs associated with compliance. While the government has and will likely create tools and programs to minimize the impact of compliance, the majority of the financial burden will fall on the industry itself. This also means the private sector must prepare now to take on these added responsibilities.
