Combining video surveillance and cybersecurity measures are two surefire ways to improve the security of your business. However, there are still some challenges that happen regularly. Overcoming these challenges isn’t as difficult as it seems. All you need is some expert advice to guide you on what to do next.
Modern video surveillance systems rely on internet protocol or IP equipment. Since the internet is ubiquitous, almost every company needs it in some way. Ethernet cables are then sent to a variety of storage devices, which can either be physical devices or a central database held in the cloud instead. Because of how typical data exchange with external devices is, this means that cybersecurity needs to be kept more secure than ever before. For instance, keeping vital information safe and sound without hackers being able to access the internal network through vulnerabilities hidden within the security camera system.
Modern cyberattacks are growing more sophisticated all the time. Preventing such intrusions has become even more critical. This is doubly important for areas of commercial security that are often overlooked or dismissed because they don’t present any possible ways for hackers to gain access to sensitive information, whether it belongs to employees, customers, or clients. Meeting the challenges related to cyberattacks comes down to following a series of best practices, including the deployment or improvement of a firewall around your business and its commercial assets.
Now let’s take a closer look at firewalls. Firewalls are an essential component in data encryption and protecting your internal networks from outside access. This barrier inspects incoming and outgoing messages for anything suspicious. Security rules are set in place by IT experts that govern how firewalls work. Some of the settings that can be put into play rely on the IP address, the MAC address, and port authentication. Unrecognized external devices or IP addresses will be blocked and users locked out, which can present a frustrating problem for remote workers who aren’t always working from home but could be spending time in a library or coffee shop to get their work done while concentrating better. Two-factor authentication on laptop computers, tablets, and other mobile devices also adds a layer of complexity to all cybersecurity measures.
