Networking Security


The Age Of Collaboration

The organizations of today have a wealth of technology at their fingertips, highlighting new features and advancements that are changing the way these entities do business, how people work and the interconnectivity between the two.

Criminal Intent

Criminal Intent

As more of our lives move online, crime has unfortunately migrated to the internet at matching pace taking form in what’s now considered cybercrime.

Held Hostage

Ransomware attacks are becoming infamous. As I write now, the Petya attack is unfolding.

Getting A Hold On The Bandwith

More than a decade ago, it was all about analog cameras. My, how times have changed. By 2010, IP-based cameras were taking over the security duties, and doing a good job, but there were challenges.

The IP Evolution

A few advantages with IP-based systems worth mentioning are remote access anytime, anyplace; digital images do not degrade over time; real time analytic capability; and content distributed electronically quickly and easily.

Bluetooth Security Flaw Puts Billions at Risk

Bluetooth Security Flaws Puts Billions at Risk

A set of vulnerabilities present in "almost every" device with Bluetooth capabilities has been revealed by researchers at security firm Armis.

The Backbone

The Backbone

For many years, the sage advice for cybersecurity leaders has been to take a layered approach to security, and those words have served the industry well. Unfortunately, cracks in those layers continue to leave organizations vulnerable to security attacks.

How to Respond - Encryption is used to foil decryption tools

How to Respond

Between 2005 and 2016, ransomware infections were more common than data breaches, making them the most pervasive cyber threat of the last 11 years. Ransomware attacks may encrypt folders and files or even the entire hard drive, or they may just lock the devices so that users cannot access them.



Protecting ATM Connections

With the rising popularity of the Internet accessible machines, the need to protect connections between the disparate ATMs and the banks’ processing centers became critical.

Encryption to Cyber Bullying

The most pervasive cyber threat in the past 11 years has been ransomware infections. Who would have even known about something like this 30 years ago, but here we are trying with all diligence to protect folders and files, or even worse, the entire hard drive.

Thermal Cameras are Hot

Thermal Cameras are Hot

Network thermal cameras were first introduced to the security market in 2010 filling a critical detection gap in network video systems.

An Ounce of Prevention

An Ounce of Prevention

Common sense dictates that it is easier to stop something from happening in the first place than to repair the damage after it has been done.

Security Strategy

Security Strategy

While many security teams at retailers are concerned about the potential for a big data breach, everyday security threats, like social engineering and shoplifting, are heightened in a world of omni-channel retail.

Not a Catch-all

Not a Catch-all

When used effectively, biometrics can contribute to safer cybersecurity practices.

Layered Approach

Layered Approach

The IT approach to layered security for systems, infrastructure and data is increasingly impacting the security department, and with good reason.

The Role of PIAM

The Role of PIAM

The proliferation of networked devices has increasingly brought IT to the table when discussing physical security.

Company Credential

By fully identifying and mitigating the practices which leave businesses vulnerable—and then investing in employee awareness training—you’ll greatly reduce risk while cultivating a more educated workforce.

Not a Catch-all

Not a Catch-all

While the technology can add an effective, additional layer of cybersecurity, it’s not a catch-all. In fact, the very nature of biometric technology can introduce additional security gaps.

Network Protection

Hacking has become a threat far bigger than most think. Indeed, the greatest threat to national security these days comes from not from aircraft carriers or infantry divisions, but a computer with a simple Internet connection located anywhere in the world.

Best Practices in the Healthcare Industry

Hospitals and medical centers face a number of challenges related to ensuring a safe environment for patients, staff, and visitors.

  • Approaching the Education Market with Milestone

    Milestone’s Laurie Dickson addresses Open Architecture, new equipment and the cost of entry and upgrading VMS systems over time. She also talks about how K-12 and Higher Education campuses differ in regard to surveillance system needs. Schools have certain guidelines they must follow to protect student identities, and Laurie addresses this question as well.
