ISCWest2019: Harden Devices with Defense in Depth
As the physical and cyber worlds continue to converge, those who have historically only focused on physical security are now challenged with the risks posed from connected internet of things (IoT) devices, a topic of interest at this year’s ISC West 2019 conference in Las Vegas. In his SIA Education sessions, Aaron Saks, product and technical manager at Hanwha Techwin America, shared best practices for applying defense in depth as a security model to secure video surveillance devices. Because the devices are connected, securing surveillance cameras demands that they are looked at through the lens of an IoT device. In order to add the necessary layers to fortify the devices, it’s first critical to know where the vulnerabilities and issues come from. To ensure the device is hardened, you can’t rely solely on a firewall. “The idea of defense in depth is a strategy where you have multiple concentric rings of security that build on each other, whereby a breach or vulnerability in one layer does not leave you defenseless,” Saks said. Multiple levels of security provide multiple protections to fall back on.
