Cost-effective ways to minimize vulnerabilities in your surveillance network

By Denise De Albuquerque

Surveillance systems are a vital part of any business, giving you the ability to keep an eye on your property and personnel. However, most small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) operate on a tight budget, so they must find cost-effective ways to protect your interests. One way to do this is by minimizing the vulnerabilities in your surveillance network. Here are the most feasible ways that can help you do just that.

Harden your systems against attack

Using a combination of firewalls, intrusion detection/prevention systems and other security measures can significantly reduce the risk of your system being breached. In line with this, implementing an incident response plan is also recommended to ensure that you are prepared to contain and mitigate any breaches that do occur quickly.

Use appropriate authentication mechanisms

Only give access to authorized personnel and make sure passwords are strong and changed regularly. You should also consider using two-factor authentication, which requires something you know (like a password) and something you have (like a physical token or key). Two-factor authentication is more secure than relying on passwords alone, and it can help prevent unauthorized access to your surveillance network.

Regularly test your security posture

Maintaining a secure network is an ongoing process that requires regular testing and security updates. One cost-effective way to minimize vulnerabilities in your surveillance network is to conduct penetration tests regularly. Penetration testing involves simulating real-world cyber attacks on your system to pinpoint any areas of weakness. By identifying and addressing these vulnerabilities, you can help reduce the risk of a successful attack.
