Are your Camera Systems impacting the Security of your Network?
Network Security can be compromised by Camera Systems using IP Services
What Camera Systems are you installing onto your existing network? Security cameras that use a Cloud service for access are configured in such a way that they open up a portal onto your network. They may be easy to install but they may not be secure.
Some Cameras Systems have Cloud services that are built in. This means they are easy to set up and install for remote access. This is generally without even changing any security settings on your router. You need to be aware that by installing smart technologies which include IP security cameras on your network you could be inadvertently creating a weakness. These weaknesses have been shown to be easily exploited via the internet. A quick search in Google will soon gain you access to unsecured security cameras around the world.
Sensitive data on your network could theoretically be accessed via any cameras that are IP based
A major security supplier’s cameras have been removed from the US Embassy and an ongoing procurement contract cancelled. They were removed due to fears that they were making their network vulnerable. The supplier was a China state owned company who managed and controlled the Cloud services that the cameras had built into them.
