Building an Intelligent, High Performance and Secure Network for Video Management

A Milestone SIA Education Session at ISC West will share best-practice guidance on mitigating cybersecurity risks in security deployments

COPENHAGEN – APRIL 5, 2018 Milestone Systems, the globally leading open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), will present one of the 85 education sessions scheduled for this year’s ISC West trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mike Sherwood, Director of Technical Operations for Milestone Americas, will address cybersecurity risks in network video implementations, with co-presenter Moses Anderson, CTO for GC&E Systems Group.

“Network design considerations for video management are important to ensure system performance, data integrity, availability and threat mitigation. The challenge is that system Integrators are confronted with a multitude of existing premise situations which often do not meet industry or manufacturer best-practice standards in today’s dynamic cybersecurity-centric world,” says Mike Sherwood.

The session called Building an Intelligent, High-Performance and Secure Network for Video Management will focus on network design best practices and the policies that support these practices - with an eye toward ensuring solutions that are available, scalable and interoperable.  Attendees of the session will learn:

- how to identify problem networks

- how to implement design measures to ensure performance and integrity
