Port of Houston
The Port of Houston consists of the Port of Houston Authority (PHA) and 150+ private industrial companies along the 25-mile long Houston Ship Channel. The Port of Houston is solely responsible for the security of its terminals. The 150+ private owners have their own security plans, however, they closely figure into the security matrix for protection within the Port. Bill Crews, CPP is the Port Security & Emergency Operations Manager and works closely with the owners to maintain a consistent level of security throughout all terminals.
Each card holder record that is part of the Port’s Symmetry Security Management System is managed by the Central Card Handler. What gives the system so much power and flexibility is that these access rights can be communicated quickly and easily to any card reader location.
