Hikvision Canada, specialising in artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics and other emerging technologies, and a manufacturer of video surveillance products and solutions, has announced the launch of its cyber security road show. ‘Cybersecurity Myths and Facts: Presented by Hikvision’, will take place in key locations across Canada (Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver) in the week of Dec. 4-8, 2017.
Video surveillance best practices
"Our challenge here at Hikvision is the same as other video surveillance providers," said Chuck Davis, Hikvision’s director of cyber security for North America. "The difference is that we are the number one video surveillance provider in the world, so we believe it is our responsibility to be vigilant in terms of cyber security defense. It’s a formidable challenge but everyone here at Hikvision is onboard."
Presented by Hikvision Canada and hosted by Davis, each road show event will consist of a two-hour interactive education session about cyber security, cyber threats and vulnerabilities, myths about the video surveillance industry, and best practices to mitigate those threats and vulnerabilities.
