Securing the Video Security System

Securing the Video Security System

Ironically, not much attention has been paid to the security of most video security systems. Anecdotal reports of video security deployments seem to indicate that many times, passwords are left at defaults, default accounts are left enabled, firewalls are not configured and other best practices of proper information security are commonly not adhered to. Reports of popular camera and DVR products being exploited by hackers as well as high profile data breaches are quickly changing the industry’s focus towards better information security. In this session, information security considerations specific to video surveillance deployments will be investigated. Additionally, how to prevent unauthorized access to video and recordings, preventing video surveillance equipment from being exploited for the purpose of attacking other networked systems, and managing security maintenance and patching in large scale systems will also be discussed.

Learning Outcomes:
1. List three events when video information is most at risk of unauthorized access.
2. Describe two methods of preventing physical access to the corporate network via IP camera network connections.
3. Define the benefits of two common software update and patching methods that can be used to maintain the security of large deployments.
