Securing Video Surveillance Devices to Close Network Vulnerabilities

We live in an increasingly connected world, where more and more devices and systems are being networked and sharing data with other systems. Convenience is a main driver behind this trend, as people have come to expect the ability to connect to and even control devices and systems from anywhere at any time. However, there is a downside to the unprecedented level of convenience provided by the growing number of networked devices, namely increased security risk. Because each device is an endpoint for networks, they introduce the potential to become entry points for hackers. Security devices must be safeguarded to protect video evidence, end devices, and networks to mitigate network risks. A review of the state of the industry and recent headlines will start the discussion. Security best practices and approaches will be discussed. The methods discussed will include how to batch update devices to streamline deployment and maintain systems efficiently.
