Achieve video cybersecurity and peace of mind

Issue 1 2022 Information Security

Connected IT systems create so much opportunity for modern organisations, but also make them more susceptible to cyberthreats. In fact, cybercrime is believed to be costing organisations $2,9 million every minute. Even worse, it can put people’s personal safety at risk and cause irreparable brand reputation damage.

The fact is that most cybersecurity breaches are caused internally — employees innocently opening phishing emails and similar security slips. This makes internal cybersecurity just as important, especially as many breaches are not detected for a long time.
