With American companies spending hundreds of millions of dollars on surveillance every year, they’re often gathering more information that they can use.
Many companies love to spend money on gadgets. But without the proper training, these security innovations go to waste. Spending money on the wrong systems will cause employee frustration but make a company no less safe.
The tried and tested methods of securing a perimeter can’t keep cyber hackers out if your networks are unsecured. Conversely, if all of a company’s resources are spent on cybersecurity but someone could just walk in and take out a server, that’s also a problem.
That’s why so many of the latest security innovations take on an integrated approach. If you’re looking to stay ahead of nefarious actors and protect your business, follow these three trends in business security in 2018.
1. Multi-Sensor Cameras
As camera image quality has improved, so has their ability to see 360 degrees around an area. Some cameras now come with the ability to not only detect motion but also to differentiate between animal and human motion in an area.
Multi-sensor camera can better pinpoint where potential intrusions are located and zoom in better than ever before. Camera systems are now integrated with mobile devices, apps, and networked interfaces to be viewed remotely from any location.
2. Better Drones
Drones are a great way to survey a large area or a dangerous facility. Not every work site, manufacturing facility, or construction project is easy to keep an eye on. There could be many ways for intruders to access your facility that could lead to damage or theft.
Having an agile, light, and fast drone allows you to take a look at every angle of your site to make sure that no one has gotten into sensitive areas. Drones are the newest and most dependable way to protect your facility.
As HD camera technology improves, the cameras also allow you a better look in and around the area, day or night.
3. Two-Factor Authentication
As hacking technology improves, two-factor authentication becomes the way for companies to keep their networks secure.
After a password is cracked, your mobile device will be triggered asking for a specific alphanumeric code. After a minute or two, that code will expire and a new one will be generated.
Through lost revenues, potential lawsuits, and damaged reputations, the average data breach now costs companies around 7 million dollars. Rather than having a static code to protect your surveillance system or digital networks, use two-factor authentication to add extra protection.
