Tom Galvin to discuss practical measures for integrators to reduce cyber attack vulnerabilities
DALLAS – March 6, 2018 – Razberi™ Technologies CEO Tom Galvin will be the featured PSA TEC 2018 Cybersecurity Track speaker next Tuesday, March 13 at 1:30 p.m. During his session, he will detail the security weaknesses of video system endpoints and outline best practices as well as new techniques to strengthen them. The PSA TEC conference will be held March 12-16 at the Sheraton Downtown Denver.
Session Title: Brave New World: Embrace Cybersecurity Protections for Your Video Surveillance Systems
Date & Time: Tuesday, March 13th, 1:30 p.m. – 2:20 p.m. MDT
Topic: From WannaCry to the Mirai virus to Devil’s Ivy and beyond, cyber attacks can wreak havoc on a surveillance and enterprise data network. Security systems are vulnerable targets for hackers who are increasingly using endpoints, such as IP cameras and network video recorders, to gain access to networks. Even isolated camera only networks can have unintended connections that bridge to the main corporate network.
Despite the growing number of incidents and threats to company revenues and reputations, the security industry has been too slow to react. Cybersecurity must be a focus as integrators install and maintain security cameras and other elements of network video surveillance systems.
However, protecting security systems is complicated, often requiring a detailed understanding of network operations processes. Relying on extensive manuals provided by camera manufacturers is labor intensive and not scalable or sustainable.
In fact, there are several pragmatic efforts that organizations can and should take immediately to reduce cyber attack exposure – and they don’t require a Certified Cisco Network Associate.
Attendees of Tom’s session will learn how to:
- Thwart would-be hackers by fixing various security vulnerabilities;
- Implement best practices for hardening cameras, switches, and servers against cybersecurity risks; and
- Apply automation to ensure security protections are done correctly and at scale.
