How network video can support suicide prevention on the rail network

It describes some current suicide counter-measures and details the size of the challenge which the rail industry faces. This paper explains how IP network video can support existing measures in order to provide an effective overall suicide prevention solution. This paper does not attempt to find broader resolution to the questions around suicide and refrains from exploring the personal and tragic circumstances surrounding many of the individuals who find themselves attempting or committing this act.

Protecting your IP camera network

Layer 2: Vulnerability management best practices timely response and transparency Axis applies cyber-security best practices in the design, development and testing of our products to minimize the risk of flaws that could be exploited in an attack. When critical vulnerabilities are discovered we fix them promptly and issue security advisories. The result is your second layer of defense.

Best practices. As members of the Building Security In Maturity Model (BSIMM) we re continuously assessing, improving and applying best practices around cyber security. These include: Design and architectural reviews, Code reviews, Testing for known vulnerabilities Responsiveness and transparency. Occasionally a new critical vulnerability may be discovered. In such cases, we guarantee speedy response, transparency and free upgrades and patches: Layer 3: Learning and collaboration understanding and mitigating risks Because there s no one-size-fits-all solution to cyber crime, your third layer of defense is a good understanding of the threats you face, their potential costs and how to protect yourself. We share our knowledge of cyber risks and how to mitigate them in a number of tools and papers that will help you put effective safeguards in place: Download our e-book for an introduction to how you can improve your cyber health ten best practices for a healthy network The Axis Hardening Guide is a detailed hands-on guide for integrators and IT departments with concrete recommendations for system hardening.

The 2016 Video Surveillance Report Download

Security Needs and Plug and Play The Video Surveillance Report 2016: Security Needs and Plug and Play is the follow-up to IFSEC Global s most popular ever white paper, Video Surveillance: Market Trends and Expectations (2015). Based on another survey of hundreds of heads of security, control-room operators and facilities managers the IDIS-sponsored 2016 report focuses on: The security needs of surveillance systems as shaped by the physical environment including challenges like low-light conditions or large spaces and the threats posed in various sectors (ie, to people, data and assets)? Which cutting-edge features such as CCTV software, mobile access, PTZ smart controls or 4K resolution are most important to security professionals?

What are the most important factors driving upgrades and would end users consider an upgrade to HD analogue ? What do security professionals think about plug-and-play systems? Below is an infographic spotlighting 5 of the most interesting findings from the report.

CCTV download: analysing the total cost of ownership of video surveillance systems

CCTV Download: Analysing The Total Cost Of Ownership Of Video Surveillance Systems

Analysing the TCO of video surveillance systems There are few studies modelling the total cost of ownership (TCO) total estimated costs across a system s lifecycle of video surveillance systems, despite this being a mature concept in many other industries. In this paper, Axis Communications presents the results from a TCO study conducted in 2015, resulting in a model with 40 costs relating to system components and stages. The model is populated with an example city surveillance project.

The analysis looks at how hardware, software, installation maintenance and operation costs combine towards the total cost of ownership. The paper also looks at how different technologies and approaches can be used to reduce the overall TCO. Complete the form to download the whitepaper.

New whitepaper on wireless CCTV in public spaces

New whitepaper on wireless CCTV in public spaces A new whitepaper has been released giving an insight into the use of wireless CCTV in public spaces. The new whitepaper is available for free from Quadrant Security Group and is the first in a series of advice and insight pieces from the security systems integrators. It looks out how local authorities and governments are finding wireless CCTV installations more appealing.

They estimate that an authority operating a network of 50 cameras on a leased fiber optic line could save around 20,000 a year with wireless CCTV solutions. The reduction in works to lay cabling to the cameras is also an attractive draw to the technology. The ability to deploy CCTV quickly and temporarily in areas where there is likely to be a short-term potential flashpoint makes these cameras much more adaptable to the fast-changing situations in a community.

An area that may benefit from CCTV today may not necessarily require it tomorrow. What s holding wireless CCTV back? QSG also explore some of the common problems and queries that wireless CCTV manufacturers and distributors come up against including concerns over data security and picture quality.

There is also a note on the practicalities of migrating to a wireless solution, with particular attention drawn to the need for a sound migration strategy and the cost of a light licensed spectrum. This is where a wireless CCTV owner needs to pay for a licence to stop other people using a frequency that interferes with the surveillance system s operation. QSG’s Ian Moore said: The truth is, when it comes to CCTV there really is no one-size-fits-all solution.

This is particularly true when it comes to wireless systems. While the general industry trend is increasingly to migrate to IP-based strategies, this isn t necessarily the answer for everyone. We therefore felt that there was both need and demand for a whitepaper to help inform and support professionals in the public space arena.
