Which are your concerns about cybersecurity?

Follow your camera vendor’s hardening recommendations . To harden your Axis cameras, see the Axis hardening guide, which is a detailed hands-on guide with concrete recommendations for system hardening.

Or, your integrator can help.

Taking appropriate security measures around network cameras is a matter of weighing the benefits of preventing a successful attack against the costs of protecting against such an attack. So the best way to make sure your costs for cyber security are appropriate is to carry out a risk analysis.

You can find out more about risk analysis in the blog post "IP cameras – don’t leave your network door open".

There are various actions you can take to prevent the services in your video systems being used to carry out a malicious attack on your network. They range from applying simple security controls to completely separating your video system from your network. Your actions should be based on a risk analysis.

You can find out more about risk analysis in the blog post "IP cameras – don’t leave your network door open".

You’ll also find recommendations on the product security page for appropriate actions to take, according to the results of the risk analysis.

Talk to your integrator about best practices – or learn about Axis best practices. Do a basic security audit of your camera vendor.

It’s important to work with a vendor with a defined policy around vulnerabilities. Axis follows strict guidelines and policies and provides speedy response and free upgrades.
