Data was always bound to be a hot topic at this year's IFSEC International event. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a buzzword since last year's show. This year, manufacturers are ready to demonstrate solutions capable of processing and analysing large volumes of information to bolster security and provide business intelligence. Organisers deliberately positioned IFSEC as a converged security event, highlighting the inherent link between the security of physical assets and the security of data. In the wake of the recent passing of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), visitors to the London-based show sought reassurance that physical security systems could help them comply to stricter rules regarding the collection and protection of personal information. Analysing Big Data Seagate Technology, known for providing the surveillance industry with hard disk drives and storage solutions, showcased its Skyhawk AI hard disk drive, its first drive created specifically to enable artificial intelligence (AI) applications for video surveillance. Seagate's drive is designed for data-intensive workloads associated with recording large volumes of footage The drive is designed for data-intensive workloads associated with recording and analysing large volumes of video surveillance footage. According to Seagate's Sales Manager Andy Palmer, AI-enabled analytics at the edge can avoid the latency associated with cloud-based systems. This makes the solution suitable for smart city applications requiring 24/7 intelligence from multiple cameras. The company also highlighted its strategic partnership with video surveillance provider Dahua Technology, with the latter seeking to leverage Seagate's technology to boost its own AI solutions. The Digital Barriers solution allows organisations to optimise how video data is transmitted depending on their particular needs Video transmission and privacy One manufacturer addressing the challenges of data transmission was Digital Barriers. The company demonstrated the integration of its EdgeVis Live platform with Milestone's XProtect video management system (VMS). The platform is designed for safe city applications, in which law enforcement and security professionals may need to stream incidents and events in real time over a limited bandwidth. The Digital Barriers solution allows organisations to optimise how video data is transmitted depending on their particular needs. For example, while some applications may favour a high clarity of video, others necessitate low data usage or a quick turnover of frames. The full, high quality video can then be downloaded later, meaning no intelligence is lost.While some applications may favour a high clarity of video, others necessitate low data usage or a quick turnover of frames The company also demonstrated its deep-learning facial recognition software, which can be used to identify suspects or vulnerable persons. To maximise accuracy, the deep learning system is trained on a wide range of images with varying angles and lighting. The solution is designed around data protection and privacy, explained Product Manager Fernande van Schelle, as all information is encrypted, and the system only identifies faces of known individuals on a pre-defined watch-list. Daniel Chau, Overseas Marketing Director at Dahua; Adam Brown, security Solutions Manager at Synopsys; Udo Scalla, Global Head Centre of Excellence - IOT Privacy, TÜV Rheinland Group GDPR for physical security professionals Dahua Technology addressed data protection concerns with an expert panel dedicated to the cybersecurity questions posed by the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Speakers included Daniel Chau, Overseas Marketing Director at Dahua; and Adam Brown, security Solutions Manager at Synopsys. Chau explained that Dahua encourages customers to address cybersecurity by undertaking independent audits and penetration tests. Brown elaborated that for any organisation, cybersecurity must be a boardroom issue. Stakeholders must avoid a 'tick box' methodology for assessing cybersecurity, and instead integrate the concept into the company's overall strategy so that best practices can cascade through the organisation.Stakeholders must avoid a 'tick box' methodology for assessing cybersecurity The panel also included insights from Udo Scalla, who specialises in data protection for IoT and smart home devices at TÜV Rhineland Group. Scalla proposed that manufacturers must avoid focusing on how best to capture data, and instead ask why the data is being collected, and whether it should even be collected in the first place. Integrators must ask why the customer intends to install the system, and what they want to do with the data – only then can they begin to assess the GDPR requirements. While the possibilities for collecting data are now endless, explained Scalla, not everything that is technologically possible ought to be made into a business reality. MOBOTIX highlighted its Cactus Concept cybersecurity campaign with a large blue cactus Protecting video surveillance systems Video surveillance manufacturer VIVOTEK also tackled cybersecurity, with a presentation on 'Security within Security.' The company showcased its partnership with cybersecurity software provider Trend Micro, which enables VIVOTEK to provide cybersecurity-enhanced cameras. The cameras include embedded anti-intrusion software to prevent and mitigate cyber-attacks by detecting hacking attempts and blocking the source IP address. Should a camera be compromised, explained Shengfu Cheng, VIVOTEK's Director of Marketing and Product Planning, it can be quarantined to stop the spread of the attack, thus controlling the damage and reducing the cost of the infection. The Cactus Concept campaign aims to educate partners and customers on how to build a cyber-secure video surveillance system Cybersecurity was also a key theme at the MOBOTIX stand. The stand played host to a large blue cactus, a very literal representation of the German manufacturer's Cactus Concept. The campaign, launched earlier this year, aims to educate partners and customers on how to build a cyber-secure video surveillance system. According to the concept, every element of the system, from image capture through to video management, must be encrypted. These are the digital "thorns" which prevent the entire system –the cactus – being compromised. Exhibitors at IFSEC 2018 made a conscious effort to address customers' challenges around the collection, transmission and protection of security system data. As solutions become more powerful, with increasing numbers of connected sensors, this is a theme which is unlikely to go away anytime soon.
