Don’t Get Caught! Schedule a Surveillance System ‘Spring Clean’
You don’t have to go far these days to hear
stories in which video surveillance plays a critical role in catching the bad
guys… in real life and on TV. Unfortunately, we’ve also seen how an
organization can end up with a huge — and costly — headache when its video
surveillance system isn’t working properly.
The 2010 security
lapse at Newark Airport was a case in point. After a serious security
breach, Transportation Security officials discovered that the surveillance camera
covering the area in question wasn’t recording. Not only was the situation
dangerous and embarrassing, but they had to close the airport for six hours!
Airports aren’t the only place problems
turn up. I’ve seen many situations where something has been overlooked or
changed, and the camera is no longer providing video you can count on.
To avoid getting caught in an embarrassing
and potentially serious situation, I recommend a little spring cleaning of your
video surveillance system.Read “Don’t Get Caught! Schedule a Surveillance System ‘Spring Clean’”
