As more and more video surveillance systems migrate to the digital realm, the risk of cyberattack upon surveillance systems increases. Because any equipment that uses a network is potentially vulnerable to cyber threats, an understanding of how to best protect an IP video system is crucial. Using the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework as a jumping-off point, this course goes over the process of identifying, protecting against, detecting, responding to, and recovering from cyber attacks. Tips and best practices for cybersecurity will be explored in detail. Making smart choices about cybersecurity will help you more effectively protect the valuable assets you are already guarding with physical security.
