One of the hot topics that continually pops up with companies that approach us and in news articles is that CCTV systems are being hacked for an assortment of criminal activity. Most recently, the discussion has been about how a particular system has been hacked to assist in the mining of Bitcoins.
Why should a CEO/COO care? Customers are punishing companies that permit their personal data to be compromised and retailers are already fighting identify fraud, credit card skimmers and data hackers. Plus, estimates run as high as 50% of certain CCTV systems are at risk.
CEO/COO should ask 3 easy questions:
- Are our CCTV systems on the list of those easily hacked?
- Do CCTV systems have access to other computers?
- Have we been hit hard by skimmers or other obvious crime at particular locations?
The answers will identify your risk level and the best way to lower it.
