Restricted Areas outside of the Secure Area are those areas that are deemed essential to the security of your maritime facility and require some level of protection, be it a physical barrier (such as gates and/or fencing), and/or monitoring by security guards, lighting, cameras and/or an intrusion detection system(s).

Common examples of Restricted Areas outside a Secure Area include the FSO’s office with SSI, guard posts outside the fence line, or off-site computer server rooms(s), electrical sub-station(s) that power the facility, and other critical utility feeds such as a water supply value.
