That motivating and progressive event when countries come together in the name of sport and healthy competition is just around the corner. It is an inspiring time when the athletes become global icons and national heroes. I’m not talking about the 2012 Olympics in London, what I’m talking about is the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and the preparation measures involved in putting together such a grand and globally spectated event. Preparations began at the moment FIFA president Sepp Blatter announced Brazil will get the “responsibility, not only the right” to host the 2014 World Cup.
The FIFA President emphasized the host country’s responsibility because of the major implications that come with putting together such a global event. Every acute detail and situation must be attended to in order to ensure a smooth, enjoyable, and safe event. A major part of Brazil’s preparations is its investment and implementation of new security measures that involve the use of advanced technology. Take a look at a previous article on this blog to read about some of the interesting devices Brazil has implemented with their near $10 billion budget, surpassing South Africa’s 2010 World Cup budget by 120%. The host country has expressed their stance on not being defensive but proactive when it comes to security measures during the world cup festivities. As a result many Brazilian agencies have taken a huge interest in state of the art interdiction equipment such as the tools and devices offered by CSECO.
