Software, hardware, and cloud services are closely linked in Hikvision’s Internet of Things solution platform. They work together to provide the most secure and transparent experience for users. Many security features are enabled by default, and key security
12 features, such as device activation and device encryption, cannot be modified to prevent users from accidentally disabling these functions. 4. Network and Information Security in the Surveillance Industry The surveillance industry began as analog before moving to digital. During the analog era, surveillance systems operated in private networks, so the industry was focused on product cost, performance, and ease of use. The cybersecurity features of the systems at that time were not the main focus, but as the surveillance industry developed rapidly toward network connectivity, it moved directly from analog to digital, the industry's initial failure to contemplate cybersecurity issues led to the advantages of the original analog equipment, such as its strong usability, to deviate from the best information security practices for the digital era. In the past, surveillance industry vendors generally enabled default support for all protocols to make it more convenient for users to use devices from all manufacturers. They also enabled automatic protocol selection in the server. Although these settings make it much more convenient for the client, they do not follow information security best practices. The surveillance industry has encountered cybersecurity issues in recent years because of the way the products and the industry developed. However, the existence of these issues does not mean the entire industry is as vulnerable as some might claim. Furthermore, the industry is now making a concerted effort to deal with potential security risks, and is implementing effective counter-measures. Objectively speaking, cybersecurity issues are not issues specific to the surveillance industry, but are issues that society as a whole face. Looking at the overall field of IT, cybersecurity issues exist in all fields, and the following basic consensus exists: The Prevalence of Security Vulnerabilities There is no such thing as an IT system or product with no security vulnerabilities. In fact, security vulnerabilities are very common. There are millions of lines of code in each product, and if only one parameter is incorrectly set, or if the positioning of two lines of code is incorrect, this may lead to a high-risk vulnerability in a system. Currently,
13 automated or manual techniques cannot be used to detect all potential cybersecurity issues. Therefore, product security issues are common. Security is for the Entire System The security of a system cannot be guaranteed by the security of a single point. The entire system must be secured. To ensure the security of video surveillance systems, the front-end, back-end, network, security devices and the platform system must work
