What Is Biosecurity, And Why Is It Important?

Mar 15, 2022

The events of the last two years as COVID-19 spread worldwide have brought the importance of biosecurity into the spotlight. Without the proper protection, diseases can sweep through communities of all sizes, devastating the economy and spreading sickness. But what is biosecurity? Read on to learn more.



Biosecurity refers to measures taken to stop the spread or introduction of harmful organisms to human, animal, and plant life. These measures are typically a combination of processes and systems implemented by bioscience laboratories, customs workers, and agricultural managers to stop the use of dangerous pathogens and toxins.


Biosecurity is also the practice of enabling businesses to prepare, prevent, and rapidly respond to any biological threats they may face to keep people safe and ensure business continuity. Here at Castle Security, we offer a range of biosecurity tools for your business.


Just as Cyber Security services enable your businesses to prepare, prevent and rapidly respond to digital threats and risks, Biosecurity services help you implement a range of security measures centred on the health and wellbeing of employees, customers, and stakeholders.


Biosecurity goals

Biosecurity is essential for Perth businesses as we wade our way through a global pandemic. Castle Security specializes in thermal imaging technology, which provides critical advantages:


  1. Rapid assessment
  2. Contact-free readings
  3. Inbuilt alarms
  4. Accurate readings


Accurate capturing of thermal body temperature can reveal signs of fever even before a person might realise they are sick. As a high temperature is one of the most common COVID-19 symptoms, installing thermal body temperature cameras at your business is often imperative. Thermal body temperature cameras detect elevated temperatures fast, are non-invasive, and are used worldwide as a front-line defence. Castle Security is among only a few Perth security companies to be able to equip your business with the right tools.
