Vulnerability comes with lack of vigilantism about things that actually matter. One’s security is compromised the moment they opt for an over-the-counter security device than buying an original piece from the established retailer. It is all but a matter of priority that decides whether your surveillance cameras make you vulnerable or not.
Security is a matter of primary concern and must not be toyed with at any point in time. There are two types of security cameras that do the technological surveillance work for you. It doesn’t guarantee security per se but gives one the sense of security to work with.
Cameras and their security risks (if any):
- Wired cameras secure their recorded data in an external hard disk that can be operated with the help of a password. You can make this modem of viewing the video secure by using a combination of passwords. Also, securing the backdoor password for the same in which no third party can hack and supersede the computer commands, you can make it as secure as you like.
- Wireless cameras operate over the net as they stream real-time videos for the people who have access to its content through the use of the internet. Now, it is essential to note that there will be 2 different servers providing internet at two different points, are both of them secure? This is where vulnerability stems from.
- As people are unable to obtain maximum security over the internet and exercise control over the same they try to blame the aide when it comes to saving their name. In this blame game, important security items like the 24/7 operating security cameras have to pay the price of being labelled as prone to hacking wherein the first place no hacking can take place over secure end-to-end data sharing in an encrypted form. Thus, it is like the pot calling the kettle black.
In the age of technology where data privacy is essential and all have become aware and vocal about things that do not work as they want them to be, there are instances that ill-informed people tend to pass around their biased opinions that at times obstruct a normal persons’ perception about things.
Technology is a confusing thing but only those who like to play with the obsolete. For the ones who’d like to evolve with the times, it is what helps them at times.
