Requirements for compliance certification
Many organisations that employ surveillance systems are required by regulations, industry standards or internal compliance standards to retain video evidence for a period of time (typically 30 to 90 days). Auditors for industry standards such as PCI, NERC, NIST, TIA-942, FedRAMP and others are now required to confirm that organisations systematically retain video data for the required retention period in order to achieve compliance certification.
