NIS 2 & CRA

Cybersecurity remains a pertinent issue for business leaders, so it’s little surprise that the European Union is working to reduce the risk of cyber-attacks to organisations.
Its latest efforts centre on two directives, the Cyber Resilience Act (CRA) and the Network and Information Security Directive 2nd edition (NIS2).
Business leaders reviewing their compliance now, would do well to partner with manufacturers that are committed to cybersecurity and ahead of the curve in complying with NIS2 and CRA.

NIS 2:

  • A directive that EU member states should comply with by October 2024.

CRA:

  • Sets minimum cybersecurity requirements for products with digital elements.

GDPR

GDPR

Our Wisenet cameras, recording devices and video management software (VMS) are equipped with features and functions that are able to prevent confidential data from being accessed, copied or tampered with, providing system integrators and end-users with peace of mind knowing that their video surveillance systems comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Hanwha Vision also provide support for the S-COP, video masking software application, developed by our technology partner, VORA Systems. This enables security personnel to quickly and easily redact faces from video in order to protect a person’s right to privacy.

NDAA

Compliance

There are a growing number of acronyms that are regularly used to describe the attributes of video surveillance products, especially with regard to cyber security, but one which may not be on the radar of European installers and integrators is NDAA. While it is a US-based initiative, it still is of importance to many European businesses. The reality is users are looking to the regulations to identify trusted partners for future projects. Additionally, businesses with US-based headquarters may be advised by the parent company to avoid blacklisted manufacturers to ensure higher levels of security.
