These technologies play a crucial role in preventing damage to property and persons, and in enhancing police capabilities for crime prevention across domestic and industrial sectors. It is imperative for us to continually adopt new security technologies to safeguard trade and industry investments from unforeseen incidents. The recent surge in artificial intelligence and IoT has led to a 38% increase in cyber-attacks reported by the US FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) from 2022 to 2023, resulting in significant financial losses ranging from $1 million to $2.5 million annually. These innovations highlights the critical need for heightened awareness and safety measures within the trade and industry sectors."
