    In thinking about the threat cybercrime presents to businesses, it is not a matter of if it will ever happen, it is a matter of when it will happen. If you don’t believe this, then consider the President of the United States created the Cybersecurity act of 2015 and the Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP) to direct the federal government to take action now to protect not only our government, but also the private sector and our personal lives from cybercrime.

ABOUT ACCESS CONTROL & VIDEO SURVEILLANCE

Access control & video surveillance includes physical security technologies such as access control devices, IP video cameras, video management software (VMS), and video storage devices and systems.

Access control usually refers to a device or system that restricts access to a place or other resources based on individual credentials. Individuals allowed to access the place or resource verify their authorization through human monitoring (such as a guard), physical keys, electronic login information, biometric identification, electronic keys, or a combination of methods. In the physical security world, access control is used to restrict access by unauthorized personnel to a property, building, or a room.

IP video cameras (Internet protocol cameras or IP cameras) are a type of digital video camera often used for surveillance. They differ from analog closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras by being able to send and receive data over a computer network or via the Internet. There are two types of IP cameras, centralized and decentralized. Centralized require a central Network Video Recorder (NVR) while decentralized do not. Decentralized IP cameras have built-in recording functionality and store video locally on flash memory, network attached storage (NAS), or hard disk drives.

Video management software (VMS) is a component of a video surveillance solution which consists of cameras, network infrastructure, storage, and the VMS. Unlike analog cameras, IP cameras operate over a standard computer Ethernet network such as LAN, WAN, or the Internet. Because of this a computer on the network must have video management software installed in order to handle recording and other functionality for all the cameras on the network. Some systems load video management software onto the cameras themselves, letting the user access and control cameras with only a smartphone or tablet app.

Video storage can be done in multiple ways, either with direct attached storage or detached storage. Direct attached storage is the most common solution for small to medium-sized installations, where the computer running the video management software stores video directly to its hard drive. Detached storage can consist of either network attached storage (NAS) or a storage area network (SAN). A NAS system is a single devices directly connected to a LAN that provides storage to the entire network. A SAN is a specialized network designed for storage and connected to a server, providing user access through the server and offering high scalability.
