by Brianna Crandall — March 28, 2018 — Viakoo, a provider of automated verification of physical security system performance, recently released a new whitepaper on the topic of hardening physical security systems against cyberattacks, titled Shrinking the Cyberattack Surface by Hardening Physical Security Systems. The whitepaper covers physical security system vulnerabilities and methods for hardening physical security and establishing sustainable cyberhygiene.
Bud Broomhead, chief executive officer (CEO), Viakoo, pointed out:
Cybersecurity threats are on the minds of many and in the news daily. It’s important that everyone who runs a physical security system know the danger that is out there and how to harden their security systems against threats.
Hardening an organization’s physical security systems is a good way to reduce the risks from cybercriminals, hacking, phishing, and other cybersecurity threats, says the company. Viakoo’s new whitepaper presents recommendations for staff, software, networks, and many other pulse points that may pose a risk to your organization.
