UK security board approves the home surveillance company. Here’s what it means for you.
The UK may seem like it’s half a world away from Alamo, CA, but when it comes to cybersecurity, that distance doesn’t mean much. So, when the UK’s Surveillance Camera Commissioner awards recognition to Axis Communications for its dedication to cybersecurity, it’s essential no matter where you are in the world. In this blog, we’ll explain who the Surveillance Camera Commissioner is, what it means to receive the recognition, and how it will impact your home surveillance installation. Keep reading for more.
You may be familiar with security features that protect your physical space, but are you protected from online threats? Cybersecurity is a growing concern for homeowners and technology professionals alike. Poor cybersecurity can cause a lot of headaches for lovers of smart devices if you’re not careful. In 2016, a DDoS attack temporarily shut down significant parts of the internet, including Netflix, Spotify, and other major services and outlets. Since then, the world has started taking cybersecurity much more seriously.
But you don’t have to panic. Outside threats are nothing new — after all, why would you invest in a security system if they were? Online attacks are relatively rare, preventable, and shouldn’t keep you from enjoying the convenience and safety of a smart home security system. You just need to remain educated about the potential dangers and stay vigilant.
With that in mind, it’s time to take a look at how Axis is doing its part to keep you safe. The Surveillance Camera Commissioner awarded the surveillance camera company recognition because it takes the appropriate steps to protect its products and your home surveillance system. According to the press release:
“Axis’ full range of camera products have been certified including Companion Series, M Series, P Series, Q Series and F Series and will mean that Axis’ products make a significant contribution to improving the UK’s resilience against cybersecurity attacks via video surveillance systems. The requirements of the scheme are an important step forward for manufacturers, installers and users alike in providing the best possible assurance for stakeholders that products aren’t vulnerable to cyberattacks.”
When you work with manufacturers like Axis, you know you’re getting a product that will keep you safe and protect your system from potential harm.
